American Legion Post 5 and the Seward Fire Department hosted the annual Christmas Fire Truck Parade on Saturday, drawing dozens of children and their families downtown for a ride in the city’s cherry red fire engines. 

Santa and Mrs. Claus joined the children for the parade up Jefferson Street, down Third Avenue and back to the Legion by way of Ballaine Boulevard. Back at the post, families gathered for wintertime refreshments andgifts from St. Nick.
