To the delight of neighborhood children (and adults), Santa flew in from the North Pole by helicopter landing on the North End fields at Puopolo & Langone Parks. A festive Christmas Parade followed with marching bands, singers, horses and Santa moving through the neighborhood along Commercial Street, North Street and over to Hanover Street. Click the images below for a photo gallery and four videos of the parade which took place on Sunday, December 13, 2009.
