Hundreds Of Santas Descend Upon Kennebunk Every Year During The Shipyard Seaside Santa Dash In Maine

We can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday season than by putting on a Santa suit and going for a run on the beach. There are several Santa runs held throughout the state, but we’re particularly fond of the Shipyard Seaside Santa Dash in Kennebunk. Check it out, then get out your running shoes and get registered!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
