BOSTON (WHDH) - Hundreds of people made their way to Christopher Columbus Park for the North End’s 49th annual Christmas parade Sunday.

Santa Claus himself flew in via helicopter.

“When the helicopter is coming in, I watch the eyes of all the children and it’s amazing,” said organizer Robert Tomasome. “Gives me such a great feeling … no words to express that feeling. Makes it all worth it.”
