Running With The Santa’s Saturday Was More Like A slow, hot walk
It was a balmy 65F out on Saturday for the Running of the Santas annual trek. This year’s “Running of the Santas” has
a new “South Pole” at Lolies Ale House (formerly McFadden’s) which is
located at 461 N. 3rd Street. Last year’s festivities attracted more
