To mark the start of the Christmas season Santa was due to arrive with his real life Reindeer Parade. November 17th 2019

With Santa travelling all way from the North Pole to see us in Bradford it seemed only right that we were there to green him.

We arrived 30 minutes before he was due to appear and got a position outside the Kirkgate Shopping Centre on Kirkgate. It was raining hard but the crowds continued to gather standing in doorways or huddled under large umbrellas. After about 15 minutes the rain eased off and a shadowy figure appeared from the car park below the Kirkgate shopping Centre Bradford. It was Rudolf.

Following hot on his heals was a penguin who cheered up the soggy crowd. The penguin and Rudolph entertained the by now large crowd with a meet and greet, stopping for selfies high fiving the kids.
