CLARK, NJ - Santa traded in his sled for a ride on a Clark firetruck Saturday afternoon. The jolly old soul braved snow, ice, rain and cold to spread his message of holiday cheer throughout the township.  

Santa was joined by holiday buddies Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and several happy elves.  The group was escorted by members of the Clark Fire Department and Clark Police Department.

Children lined up to share their wishes with Santa.  Paige Evert hopes to find a baby stroller under the tree on Christmas morning, while her brother Ethan wishes for a Darth Vader car.
