Started in 1982, this is a non-timed event for EVERYONE, no matter your ability. The Santa Run, Walk & Ride is about spreading holiday cheer as hundreds of Santas in full Santa outfits (or Santa hats or other holiday wear) walk or run down Main Street!
NEW this year:
- Can’t run or walk? Sign up to ride Molly the Trolley!
- You can now BIKE the route as well! Fat tires, mountain bikes preferred. Experienced adult riders only. Note there may be snow or ice on the roads & the roads are not closed to traffic.
- Hosted by Robin Rock, former mid-day host of 93.9 FM.
- Find gifts or ornaments along the route & WIN a prize!
- $100 Prize for “Best Group” costumes & $25 for “Best Individual”
- Music along the route provided by DJ Donnie.
- Post race snacks provided by Carriage Court Pizza. Also Mexican Hot Chocolate from LaQuesadilla Mexican Grill
- A visit with Santa Claus & Scrooge!
- Vote for YOUR local school, church or charity. Choose one of your own or choose Girls on the Run, St. Mary’s School or the Self-Injury Support Group.
- We will be collecting food & items for “Crown Point Cares” & “God’s Groceries”. Drop off a bag of donated items at Cafe Fresco, Carriage Court Pizza, Centier Bank or First Merchants Bank & receive a gift from Hometown Happenings.
After 12/15 & on Event Day: $30 for all ages!
