Santas ho-ho-ho for charity on NYC's 5th Avenue

Friday - 11/23/2012, 3:40pm  ET

NEW YORK (AP) - 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.
