Santa's reindeer land at Poplar's Chrisp Street Christmas market

Delighted children received early gifts as Father Christmas landed his sleigh in London's East End—with real reindeer, of course!
Santa’s post box overflowed with letters written by the eager children as they waited for him to arrive at Poplar’s Chrisp Street Christmas market on Saturday.
Outside they took pictures with two of his trusty reindeer and posed in the sleigh.
Families were entertained around the market square off East India Dock Road by giant elf stilt walkers, balloon artists, a hall of kinky mirrors and karaoke in an e-car.
Christmas gifts handmade by East End local traders were going like Yuletide hot cakes at the craft market.
Tower Hamlets councillor Josh Peck was invited by Poplar Harca housing organization to drop by to judge Chrisp Street’s festive shop window competition, won by JP’s Café.
