The holiday event season continues throughout the North End! Steriti Rink was the sight for the annual Santa Skate & Toy Drive.

Loads of toys were collected during the free skating event. A raffle with several prizes also helped contribute to the cause.  Toys piled in along with kids who laced up their skates to get on the ice! Santa was in high demand from those who are eagerly looking forward to Christmas day.

The festivities were put on by the North End Columbus Day Celebration Committee, with special thanks to the Department of Conservation and Recreation, Boston Bruins, Representative Aaron Michlewitz, Senator Joe Boncore and Councilor Lydia Edwards.
