  • Special note: Participants must sign up by November 20th to guarantee a Santa Suit, so sign up well in advance!


  • If you plan to use your own costume or a Santa Suit from a previous year, you can select the option to use your own and save on waste.
  • Dogs and strollers are welcome; we request that they start at the back so no one trips.
