The Winter Solstice Alley Waltz happened last night.
It was a lovely tour through a few of Peterborough’s alleys wherein we followed Granny Kokum and the Star Child on their journey to light the star of the new year.
A large crowd of the big and the small braved the very cold evening to enjoy the fun.
Granny Kokum and the Star Child exchanged little gifts with the woodland animals in exchange for a light to brighten one arm each of the star. The animals were in turn sweet and mischievous.
So were the children who watched the show.
It was a fine way to welcome the newly returning Solstice sun.
