Groups of carollers in their festive best entertained shoppers in Victoria’s downtown core Saturday during the second annual Figgy Pudding Carolling Contest.

Each group sang carols for 15 minutes at three different locations. Prizes were awarded for the best singing and costumes in each of three categories: choirs of five or more, group of four or less from local businesses or organizations, and best dressed group.
