Deserving Kids get a Special Flight to the North Pole
Updated: Monday, December 16 2013, 05:00 PM EST
HEBRON, Ky and The North Pole (WKRC) -- There was some holiday magic in the Tri-State this weekend and deserving children were the recipients.
They actually left the Tri-State briefly, flying to the North Pole from the Cincinnati Airport.
We caught up with them before they took flight Saturday.
It looked like a fun party at a Delta terminal and it was only the beginning for children and families needing some extra TLC this season. Some of the families are from around the world staying at the Ronald McDonald House while their children get medical care.
Other children being treated to the fun and singing are from the organization Most Valuable Kids who serves those who are underserved. Those providing the signing are from the West Clermont Choir.
Santa and Mrs. Clause were there and the excitement from the children could be seen in every smile.
Santa, as he normally does, had a big surprise. The children got to board a plane bound for the North Pole.
The plane magically and quickly made it to the North Pole with the sound of Christmas music in the background.
At the North Pole there was quite the welcoming committee. As the children made their way from where the plane had landed to a whole new party plenty of familiar faces helped made the children feel comfortable.
Mascots from the Bengals, Cyclones, NKU and the Reds.
This is the third year for the North Pole Flight.
The Ronald McDonald House cares for 78 families and serves as their home away from home.
