Southborough – On a damp Dec. 6, families donned rain gear and attended the 37th annual Santa Day. This was only the second time in the event’s long history that inclement weather grounded Santa’s helicopter, which usually lands on St. Mark’s School field.
The Southborough Fire Department came to the rescue and transported the special guest from the North Pole to the center of town in a fire truck. Afterward, children shared their gift lists with him at the Community House, where refreshments were available.
Entertainment was provided by Southborough resident Dave Garden of Music Together. Serving as Santa’s helpers were students from Fay School.
The longtime tradition is organized by Kindergroup, a cooperative playgroup in Southborough.
