ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Therapy canines wore their Christmas best while children and employees of SwedishAmerican Hospital sang carols marking the Hospital's Annual Holiday Tree Lighting.

The highlight of the event was a parade of dogs from SwedishAmerican's Caring Canines program wearing holiday costumes that included Santa Claus and reindeer.

Dr. Bill Gorski, President and CEO for SwedishAmerican, offered a holiday message honoring the therapy dogs.

Local musician Carl Cole was also on hand performing for patients, visitors, and hospital staff.
