FREEPORT -

More than a dozen boats made their way down Freeport Village's iconic Nautical Mile Saturday night, decked out in lights and blasting festive music for all to hear.

The Holiday Boat Parade is an annual tradition that helps ring in the holiday season.

"This is so much fun," said Debi Malone, of Long Beach. "If you want to feel Christmasy, don't go shopping…Well, shop. But come here!"

The parade featured an appearance from the big man himself, Santa Claus.
