Heyden Starr, Michele Harris and Donna Ahlgrim cross the finish line of the 5K Santa Dash, which took runners, walkers, dashers, strollers, to the Aztec Ruins and back.

Caleb Olson #205 was the first person to pass the finish line at the 5K Santa Dash held on Dec. 9 in conjunction with the Aztec Sparkles celebration. Olson's time for the 5K was 20:32. He was closely followed by Cody Smith with a time of 21:24, and Sebastian McNeal at 22:08. The first three women to cross over the finish line were Kelly Burkholder with a time of 22:28, Samantha Montoya at 28:53 and Kristi Brooks with a 30:26 time.

There were 75 people entered in the Dash, which started and ended at Aztec City Hall.

The Sparkles Parade was held at 6 PM on Saturday evenings, after a day of activity downtown. About thirty entries were received for the parade. It seemed that everyone who wasn't in the parade was there to watch ... the streets were lined with hundreds of people!

Winners of the Sparkles Parade were:

1st Place - The Potters House

2nd Place - Steamers and Dreamers

3rd Place - Toys for Tots
