The sidewalks along Government street were full Saturday (Nov. 17) evening as floats, marchers and, of course, Santa Claus joined up for the annualĀ Island Farms Santa's Light-up Parade.

The procession moved from the legislative buildings and ended at Store Street.

Volunteers also collected food for the Mustard Seed Food Bank.
