REINDEER, elves, snow queens and all things Christmas helped transform City Park into a festive winter wonderland on Saturday.

Hosted by Bradford Council and City Park, Bradford, the event was blessed with fine but chilly weather which saw more than 40 stalls selling arts and crafts as well as festive food.

There was entertainment in the streets including Santa and his helpers, a pair of reindeer, stilt walkers and Christmas fairies.

Elsewhere there were mystical creatures and roller skating presents as well as Christmas music and street theatre.

A special workshop in The Broadway saw groups making their own lanterns which were displayed in a lantern parade leaving Bradford Cathedral at 4.30pm and heading via Market Street to City Park.

The festivities began at 12 noon and culminated in a gathering in the city centre at 8pm.
