Many, many Santas to race through Westport

Santa, in fact, lots of Santas, will be on the streets of Westport this weekend.

That’s because of a new event, the Santa Dash, where all of the runners will be dressed as the jolly guy. The run begins Saturday morning at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Westport Road and Pennsylvania Avenue.

According to the event summary, each participant gets his or her own Santa suit.

There’s also an elf dash for those aged 12 and under. Elf hats included.
