Santas parade for charity on 5th Avenue
NEW YORK -- 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.
