After 30 years of riding with the big guy through Lynn streets, she’s retiring. Sunday was her final parade.

“On every street corner there’s at least 10 deep of the kids,” Mrs. Claus said. “They’re all smiling and so excited to see us. It’s going to be tough to miss, but it’s been an honor. I’m very proud of the 30 years that I did.”

Mrs. Claus went out with a bang, bringing a smile to the faces of kids and parents alike.

What’s next for Mrs. Claus? Retiring to the North Pole.

“Thats probably where I’ll be. I will stay up there and let santa come down and do the sleigh ride and i’ll take care of the things at the north pole”
