'Toys' motorcycle parade moves across Chicago

Motorcyclists with big hearts were doing their part Sunday to make sure every child receives a gift over the holidays.

This year marked the 33rd annual Chicagoland Motorcycle Parade for Toys For Tots. The route began at 83rd Street and Western, then, headed straight north and ending at Devry University.

Santa swapped out his reindeer and sleigh to ride a 'tricked-out' hog.

"I don't pull out the reindeer until the 24th. Not only that, but parking in Chicago is very difficult," Santa told ABC7 Chicago. " When you take and reach out and help a child in need -- every child deserves a Christmas. When you do that, you can't beat that feeling."

Santa Claus and the other volunteers take part in the ride every year to help the Marines' Toys For Tots program.
