On Saturday, December 10, 2016 the annual Running of the Santas will return to Philadelphia for an afternoon of music, food and drinks.
With thousands of people dressed in a wide variety of holiday costumes, the three block run will culminate in a celebration featuring ten live bands, four DJs, food trucks and beer specials. This year’s run will begin at the “South Pole” or the Field House, 1150 Filbert Street, and end at the “North Pole” or The Electric Factory Complex, located at 421 N. 7th Street in Philadelphia.
The Running of the Santas began back in 1998 as a small bar tour with only 40 people. Last year, the event saw more than 8,000 people participate.
Each year the annual event donates its funds to a number of different charities across the Philadelphia region.
