Grab your stockings and your Santa hats for a fun and festive race that will have the little ones running with glee as they chase Santa around the Square. All participants will receive a special gift from Santa upon completion and the opportunity for early access to photos with the big guy following the run. The race is open to children ages 12 years old and younger.

Parents are encouraged and welcome to participate with their registered children. Wagons and strollers are also allowed.

There will be music, stilt walkers, balloon artists, and other entertainment for the whole family, not to mention the unending shopping and dining options that Downtown Carrollton has to offer.
