Residents line Ocean Boulevard to welcome in the holiday season with parade.
It's that time of year when children are clamoring for a one-on-one interview with the man of the season, Santa.
Residents had that chance Saturday night following the Light Up the Village parade on Siesta Key. Floats and businesses made their way down Ocean Boulevard to welcome the holiday season. The final float caught every child's attention with Santa aboard.
When 6-year-old Sydney Bellegarrigue met with Santa Saturday night she was ready.
She brought her Christmas wishlist to deliver to the man of the season, Santa Claus, in person. Her growing list includes some Littlest Pet Shop toys and the Lea American Girl doll. She also has some technology on her list.
"I told him that I want an high-definition video drone to spy on my parents," Bellegarrigue said. "He said I got a good chance of getting them all."
