Father Christmas brought a pack of furry visitors to Bicester Avenue Garden Centre last Saturday as he prepared for his first grotto visits of the season.
Customers were able to meet dogs from Karluk Siberian Huskies at the event, which also offered a bouncy castle and giant slide for youngsters.
Children can visit Father Christmas in his grotto at the garden centre every weekend until Sunday, December 23. The grotto will also be open on December 7, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 24.
Father Christmas broke with tradition this year by arriving in a Chevrolet Camaro sports car instead of the usual sleigh.
