Santa and Mrs. Claus rode a Gloucester Volunteer Fire and Rescue boat at the end of Saturday’s Christmas parade. Joining the North Pole couple was Alexander Swan, the son of GVFR firefighter Aaron Swan. Santa Claus said that Alexander was a good helper, pointing out groups of children along the parade route so that the Jolly Ol’ Elf could wave to them. Photo by Charlie Koenig
