Festivities began at 5 p.m. when Mr. and Mrs. Claus, riding a motorcycle, led a short procession of vehicles decorated in the Christmas spirit through all four quadrants of the neighborhood as neighbors came out to holiday cheer them on.
After the parade, residents signed in with board member Susan Tuttle in the rec room, got a raffle ticket for a drawing for prizes, left an unwrapped toy for the Salvation Army to distribute to needy children, and took a photo with the Clauses.
