The winner for the ugliest sweater (in my opinion) goes to…. Bigfoot Santa in a bikini! See photos below.
There was a huge turnout in Fairmount Park for this year’s Ugly Sweater Run. Participants ran this 3.1 mile course wearing their most hideous or most awesome holiday sweater. Afterwards runners were treated to hot cocoa and or adult beverages.
Driving through Northern Liberties dodging thousands of Running Santas was completely worth it as this year’s Krampuslauf Philadelphia turnout was impressive. Over 300 attendees gathered at Liberty Lands Park for this annual parade and celebration. Afterward the parade guests enjoyed Lux Arati bellydance & fire troupe’s performance at Liberty Lands.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation hosted its 7th annual Lemon Run at Fairmount Park on Sunday November 8th. This 5K is the biggest one-day fundraising event for this foundation which has raised over $100 million dollars to help fight childhood cancer. This year’s race drew thousands of participants for a kid’s dash and the 3.1 mile course in front of the Please Touch Museum. Check out the photos and a spectacular whip and nae nae performance below.
Easter Sunday was the 10th anniversary of the Philly Zombie Crawl on South Street Philadelphia. This year the crawl was officially promoted to a parade; therefore the undead were allowed to march down the middle of South Street to hundreds of spectators on the sidewalks. Prizes were awarded to the best zombies at the parade’s end in front of The Legendary Dobbs. From there the hoard dispersed to various bars and establishments where the real party began.
