Yaletown’s biggest holiday event, CandyTown, kicked off another fabulous Christmas season on Saturday with gourmet food, ice sculptures, horse-drawn carriage rides, Santa Claus and a range of festive characters.

Mainland Street came alive on Saturday afternoon for the 4th annual free outdoor Christmas festival, which featured spectacular music and performances and a gift market for early holiday shopping. Intricately-dressed characters, like Santa Claus and the Ice Queen, also roamed the streets meeting with families for photo-ops.

Dozens of food vendors showed up to the event, including a cotton candy food truck, Man Cakes Bakery and frozen maple taffy pops – a kind of ingenuous popsicle made from rolling maple syrup in snow. There even was a drink fountain that ran liquid through an ice sculpture of Olaf from the Disney movie Frozen.

If you missed out on the festivities, or want to relive the spectacular festival, scroll through the photos below:
