Santas parade for charity on 5th Avenue

Friday, November 23, 2012

It's another post-Thanksgiving tradition: a huge serving of ho-ho-ho along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

The 110th annual Sidewalk Santa Parade has been around since 1902.

Fifty fully suited, bell-ringing Sidewalk Santas were part of the Friday festivities.

After their jolly old stroll, the Volunteers of America Santas were whisked away - not by sleigh, but by bus.

The donations they raise will used for a holiday food voucher program for needy residents.
