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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
