KEY WEST (CBSMiami/FKNB) - Not Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, but two dancing "dolphins" delighted spectators during a lighted holiday bike ride through the festively decorated streets of Key West on Wednesday night.

Island residents John and Paula Tishok worked on the creation of replicas of the marine mammals made from a variety of recycled materials wrapped in paper mache .

The festive bike ride, led by Santa Claus consisted of some 250 peddlers.

It was a facet of an annual Wesley House Family Services organization toy drive for children and just one event of many occurring during the tropical islands' Key West Holiday Fest.

The Florida Keys News Bureau contributed to this report.
