Santa comes to Baltimore in the mayor’s parade

For a few hours this gorgeous Sunday afternoon, Baltimore turned out to welcome Santa and announce, with all fanfare, the holiday season, with Mayor Catherine Pugh and the mayor’s annual Christmas parade bringing down The Avenue the local and traditional host of elves.

As is our practice with parade coverage, we post one picture for each marching band that participated in the parade. Additional photos will be released to the directors or other school officials upon request, and higher resolution photos are certainly available. Photos are reduced in quality to facilitate loading on a web page and on mobile devices with limited data plans. They are also selected to show the widest variety of settings for student-musicians, but several photos are available for each band.
