ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Santa took over downtown Rochester Sunday in a newer holiday tradition, the Santa Stampede.

More than 250 Santas, young and old, participated in a three mile run abd walk event around Rochester to spread holiday cheer. The event began at 10 a.m. at the Fleet Feet at the Armory on Culver Road.

The local holiday tradition started back in 2019.

This year, participants and members of the community were encouraged to bring a new unwrapped fleece blanket for donation to the Bivona Child Advocacy Center.
