WATCH: Skiing Santas raise money for charity
NEWRY, Maine —
More than 200 people donned Santa Claus costumes and skis to hit the slopes for the 19th annual "Santa Sunday" in Maine, this past weekend (December 2).
The slopes and lifts at the Sunday River resort were packed with revelers sporting Santa's signature red suit with white trim.
This year's event raised $4,000 for local charities, according the resort's website.
While some skiers went as far as to sport fake Santa inspired beards, others chose to embody the mythical figure's jolly persona.
The "Santas" could be heard bellowing "Ho. Ho. Ho" and ringing bells as they skied and snowboarded down the mountain.
