Children gather around Santa Claus at Langley Park during the Lighting of Langley ceremony Saturday, Nov. 29. Snow from the night before made the Langley Chamber of Commerce event an uncharacteristically winter wonderland in the Village by the Sea. The event kicked off the holiday shopping season in Langley, which includes a raffle for purchasing items in the city and a parade.
