Santa jumped off his helicopter to hand out presents in the city to some kids in need.

Santa flew in over Main Street Tuesday making quite an entrance before taking the time to spread holiday cheer to more than  500 very excited kids. 

Organizers loved the turnout and they say this toy drive brings along an experience they hope the kids will never forget.

Karen Iglesia, organizer, said, "We were shocked by the turnout, we're still shocked. But this shows the community needs this. And we appreciate the news coming out, covering such a positive event, Santa landing in the middle of the city is an amazing event for our kids."

This is the third year this toy drive has helped to make the holidays special for inner city children.
