Can you think of a better way to get in the holiday spirit than by watching thousands of Santas running down the street? Neither can we.

SUPPORT

Great Santa Run It’s a funny juxtaposition, Santa (bowl full of jelly) and fitness (bowl full of eight-pack), but Opportunity Village’s annual red-suited run is the best holiday spectacle ever. And it’s celebrating 10 years of raising funds to support indiviuals with disabilities. Wanna pitch in—and find out what 15,000 Santas looks like? December 6, 10 a.m. start, $40-$55 day-of registration to run, Fremont Street.

LAUGH
