Festive fun day

The Hyundai Mid Canterbury Christmas Festival had something for everyone at the Tinwald velodrome complex on Saturday.

The festival, organised by Carol Johns and Santa’s little helpers, saw Father Christmas make an appearance, and along with some festive fun and a bit of market shopping put the smile back on the faces of those young and old.

The Ashburton Courier went along to snap some action.
