Old Santee Canal Park presents the 7th annual Tinsel Trot Holiday Fun Run/Walk. Everyone is invited to take an evening run, walk, dash, dance or prance through the two-mile course that offers a “sneaker preview” of the Celebrate The Season Holiday Driving Tour.
This family-friendly event was awarded the Best Run/Walk Event by readers of the Berkeley Independent and will feature a special guest appearance from Santa Claus! Children’s activities and food will be available. All food proceeds will benefit local non-profit charities. Music will be broadcasted through the entire course this year, and costumes are encouraged. Youth groups are welcome, and children must be accompanied by an adult. Sorry, no pets.
THIS IS A RAIN OR SHINE EVENT.
Race entry fees are non-refundable.

Join our Educator Kristin at Old Santee Canal Park for a trip down Biggin Creek. Though winter is officially upon us, many creatures of the swamp can still be found out and about enjoying this incredible habitat. Kristin will point out the plants and animals you come across on this trip, and you will get to explore the remnants of the first canal ever built in America. Canoes, lifejackets, and paddles will be provided and a short instructional period for beginners will be done in the classroom. So bring the whole family out for a day filled with excitement and the perfect blend of history and nature.
