Get your beard and red suit ready for a good cause!

Thousands of Santas will be hitting the streets of Philadelphia on Saturday for the annual "Running of the Santas" festival.

And you can be part of it. Tickets are still available!

Julie Dorenbos, wife of Philadelphia Eagles long-snapper Jon Dorenbos, and Ryan Van Laeys will be there. They're spokespeople for the event.

The 16th-annual festival benefits two local charity organizations. The event started in Philadelphia in 1998 and now takes place in 26 cities and three different countries.

It all kicks off at 11 a.m. at Finnigan's Wake at Third and Spring Garden streets. A three-block fun run will be held at 4 p.m. to the Electric Factory.

The festivities continue with a concert and party at the Electric Factory.
