See photos from Riverhead’s 20th annual holiday parade and bonfire

The wait was worth it.

After Riverhead’s 20th annual holiday parade and bonfire was canceled last week due to poor weather, the festivities kicked off Saturday afternoon down Main Street.

The event was hosted by the Riverhead Business Improvement District and Town of Riverhead. Santa made his arrival in Riverhead as those in attendance enjoyed hot chocolate and plenty of holiday spirit on the first day of winter.
