Elves play among the trees, candy canes and snowmen.

Penguins, elves, an ice princess, dancers and Santa Claus marched or floated along the streets of Saint-Sauveur, Saint-Roch and Limoilou. On Nov. 11, children with their Christmas wish-list letters for Old St. Nick and adults with young hearts lined the route for the 16th annual Parade des Jouets. Despite the cold temperatures, everyone was joyful and excited.
