The Riverhead Lions Club held its annual Christmas parade on Sunday in downtown Riverhead. Hundreds of people lined Main Street as the marchers made their way from Osborn Avenue to the Peconic riverfront.
Riverhead VFW members, local scout troops and the Riverhead High School band led the way, followed by dozens of firetrucks, local dignitaries and, of course, Santa Clause with Mrs. Claus.
Following tradition, Riverhead Supervisor Sean Walter presented Santa with a key to Riverhead.
The key allows Santa Christmas Eve access to houses without fireplaces.
