WHILE the weather can't seem to pick a season, it seems only fair to do the same.

It is of course far too early to be talking about Christmas but nostalgia is timeless.

A recent rummage in the Leader archives has rustled up some great photos.

One batch featured these shots of the much-loved Father Christmas parade in Wrexham, taken in 1969.

More parade memories: 1980, 1982, 1983, 1990

The streets are filled with wide eyed children for the once hugely popular event, all that's missing is the snow.

Is it time to try and bring back this festive spectacle?
