RESIDENTS lined the streets in Leigh yesterday, Sunday, for a reindeer parade with a host of festive characters on show.

The parade began at Spinning Gate car park before making its way to Bradshawgate, Brown Street North, Silk Street and Lord Street.

Community and dance groups joined festive entertainers with the mayor of Wigan borough Cllr Sue Greensmith also in attendance.

Characters from Leigh Comic Con who were at the festival on Saturday also joined in with the parade.

It then headed back to its starting point.

There was a reindeer pen set up at Spinning Gate Car Park which gave people the chance to meet the festive animals.
