Santa and company in Jeffersonville

JEFFERSONVILLE, NY — A plethora of Santa’s fans were on hand to ring in the holiday season as hundreds lined Main Street in Jeffersonville, NY for the 21st annual James Dworetsky Holiday Parade. Firetrucks festooned with holiday lights and festive floats from counties far and wide entertained the crowd as kids received treats handed out by firefighters along the parade route. This year, Santa was heard to cry “Aye, Matey!” as the Lumberland Fire Department pirates joined the parade. For more on the cavalcade, see Jonathan Fox’s column on page 25.
