Everyone makes it on the "nice list!" Some of you will even make it to the really-nice list and will receive $100 in cold hard cash, $20 in cold hard cash or $25 in gift cards to local restaurants.
Today is all about getting Santa ready for his long Christmas Eve journey! You will join hundreds of other Festive Holiday Characters and make your dash for cash along the parade route in Downtown Billings! This "Dash for Cash" is the preamble to annual Billings Holiday Parade! The race starts with the lighting of the Christmas Tree.
This race is for every single family member (except the 4-legged furry ones) with family pricing! The parade route is less than 1 mile long (.71 to be precise), so even those with the shortest legs will have a jolly ol' time! Let's make this first year of the race the happy happiest time!
Dress up like your favorite holiday character or bring out your favorite holiday outfit! Don't own a holiday suit? That's ok, the race shirts are Santa Themed! We've also thrown in a Santa hat! What's your favorite holiday character? Rudolp? An Elf? Scrooge? A snowman? Pick your favorite, dress up, grab the whole family and we'll see you at the dash!
The first two people across the finish line receive some extra fun goodies!
Finisher food consists of hot chocolate, candy canes and cookies!! Just what Santa, himself, ordered!
Be sure to stay for the Billings Holiday Parade after you dash! The one true Santa will be there as he makes his annual trip to Billings as he helps us kick off our hoiday season!
