Thanksgiving Weekend Kenny's Flowers presents Media's 3rd Annual Santa Parade, Fun Run & Walk -- Sunday, Nov 27th.  
After a luscious Thanksgiving Dinner and all the leftover turkey and dressing sandwiches that follow (yummmm!) - we could all use a little exercise.  

So Media invites you to a giant, one-of-a-kind Block Party with a RUN & WALK that benefits local food charities, plus live music, dancing, Mummers and a dazzling Parade down State Street.

Bring your holiday shopping list because you'll find amazing Parade-Day deals & steals at Media's shops and 20+ restaurants. 
You'll find Global-inspired items as well as Tools, Toys, Fashion, Art and Antiques at Santa-inspired prices.  Plus Media's 'Restaurant Row' is a gold mine for gift cards and certificates.

The Christmas Fun Run (detailed below) is the official kick-off for the event...but as twilight falls, Media glows like a miniature Times Square as String Bands, Parade Floats and local musical and dance groups start at the Media Theatre and cruise down State Street to Front - then down to Monroe.

This is the quintessential Americana Day where 'everybody's hometown' becomes the warmest place to be!  Kids act like kids and adults act like bigger kids.

Last year about 5,000 people lined the streets, shopped at the stores, and cheered on a host of only-in-Delco characters that marched in the parade behind Santa's sleigh. Last year everyone from Darth Vader to Elvis showed up.

Eat too many cookies on Turkey-day? Sign up for the event's 4pm CHARITY KICK OFF with a Christmas Fun Run & Walk that benefits Media's Food Bank and Toys for Tots Program.

Participation is FREE for those who bring an unwrapped toy or a canned good.  And everyone is encouraged to come in holiday costumes (or any other costume you might left over from Halloween.
