The start line includes massive inflatables, photo stations, games and the most cheerful holiday music. At the finish line, take a family photo in a larger than life snow-globe, run through our fake snow and so much more! • Awards for Best Ugly Sweater, Best Kids Sweater, Best Pet Attire and Best Real/Fake Mustache/Beard will be declared.
