"Murphy was really against us last year," organizer John Muhitch said in reference to Murphy's law. "If it could have gone wrong, it did."
Last year, it poured down rain. Two fire trucks broke down during the run and another two got stuck in mud, he said.
But this year, it was reportedly a great success.
"It was a very good night for everyone," Muhitch said.
The toy drive, sponsored by Annapolis Firefighters Local 1926, collects gifts from visitors and then works with several area agencies to fulfill Christmas wish lists for needy families. Muhitch said next weekend a group of volunteers, including area high school students, will sort through the gifts and prepare them for each family.
