Southborough – Families gathered Dec. 7 for the 36th annual Santa Day to see the special guest land by helicopter on St. Mark's School field. Handling crowd control were members of Boy Scout Troop 92.

Afterward, children shared their gift requests with Santa at the Community House, where refreshments were served. Entertainment was provided by Southborough resident Dave Garden of Music Together.

The longtime tradition is organized by Kindergroup, a cooperative playgroup in Southborough. Santa has arrived at the event by helicopter each year except one, when a storm grounded him and he was transported by fire truck.

Santa's helper, aka Event Chair Pam Higgins, and Santa Claus disembark from the helicopter.
