Tampa, Florida -- Santa joined The Krewe of Rumrunners at Saint Joseph's Children's hospital for a special holiday party.

Pediatric patients received gifts, did some arts and crafts, listened to holiday music, and enjoyed some delicious treats.

Julissa Rivera, a mother, said,"This morning I was so sad because I wouldn't be able to go home. But as soon as she knocked on the door and came down to see Santa, had a picture and some gifts for him, I'm so happy. I'm proud that this organization is doing all this for all these children."

The Krewe of Rumrunners has been teaming up with the hospital for more than 10 years.
