Organizers said the yearly holiday show is vital in reaching their goal of serving nearly 7,000 people — part of their Christmas Hope campaign.

“This event sells out every year and we’re privileged to be part of it,” said Lethbridge Food Bank Warehouse Manager Phil Rosenzweig. “We really appreciate the support that Lethbridge gives in this community Christmas time event.”

Bands in attendance were joined by the Magrath Elementary School choir.
