    The Boston Firefighters Burn Foundation held their annual Christmas in July event at Shriners Hospitals for Children.

    Santa and Mrs. Claus rode Tower 10 to the 7th floor of the hospital where they delivered presents and "holiday" cheer.

    Taylor Pennelli, the manager of Therapeutic Services at the hospital said, "Many of our patients are here for several weeks, or even months, and the days get long. Events like Christmas in July help to lift their spirits, brighten their days, and give them a chance to forget about their injuries for a few minutes to just have fun."

    This is the 14th year the Burn Foundation has held the event.
