Some parades feature floats, but one Saturday in Chicago featured toys when the Chicago Firefighters Union held its 15th annual Toy Parade.

Bikes, dolls, games and the like were delivered to the IBEW Union Hall where they will be sorted and wrapped for Catholic Charities.

The organization will give them to children in need.

A spokesperson says Catholic Charities tries to help 20,000 children each year.
