SEASIDE PARK - Santa visited the Park Bakery in Seaside Park, seven months late, on Thursday morning.

Families who had their hands full recovering from Sandy last Christmas were there to finally celebrate the holiday.

Children and adults alike enjoyed the festivities and free food.

Event coordinator Tiffany Hulse says the morning was a welcome break for families who haven't had much time to enjoy themselves.

"They've been working on their houses and everything,” Hulse says. β€œIt's just a day to get out and have some have fun.”
