Santa Claus is coming to town! Or rather thousands of Santas are coming to town—on Saturday, December 12 for the annual Santa Run Texas hosted by My Possibilities.

As official media sponsor of the event, Plano Profile magazine has teamed up with Vignette Mobile Studio to bring a fun “photo booth in a van” experience to the festivities!

Plano Profile and Vignette Mobile Studio will be located right at the start of the race, within the “Vendor Village” area of the event. We’ll be taking photos, handing out our December edition of Plano Profile and will also be giving all participants the opportunity to climb on into Vignette’s photo booth, which is housed within a 1971 VW van. Not only is the van super cool, but Vignette also have some fun and festive props prepared—and you’ll be able to take away your own photo strip as a great memento of the event. It’s free—so don’t be shy, come say hi! We look forward to seeing y’all there!
