Weekend Happenings: Christmas Parades, The Nutcracker & The Running of the Santas
Here comes Santa Claus. There goes Santa Claus. Lots and lots of Santa Clauses. The Running of the Santas happens this Saturday at 7pm outside of the Tropicana Casino.
The Running of the Santas event is a national pub crawl across 25 cities that is a bit of holiday craziness for charity and just for the heck of it!
The Running of the Santas is one of those events you won’t soon forget seeing!
