WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — Santa Claus came to town in Newry, Maine, over the weekend after more than 200 people dressed up as the (allegedly) fictional character.
It was all a part of the 19th annual "Santa Sunday," which raises money for local charities in the state.
As part of the event, participants ski on the slopes of the Sunday River resort. A sea full of Santas rolled down in their red suits and (mostly) fake Santa beards.
CBS News reports some of the participants were chanting "Ho, ho, ho," to ensure their impersonations was just right. Sunday River resort says more than $4,000 was raised on behalf of charities this year.
