WESTPORT — Many wearing headgear appropriate for the occasion, participants headed out on the Walk, Jog and Run Like a Reindeer event during Westport’s recent holiday celebration.

Proceeds from the activity benefited the Westport Food Shelf, and the spirit of the season filled the air as revelers took part in numerous activities.

Among them were mailing letters to Santa, decorating cookies, Christmas stories at Westport Library, visits with the Jolly Old Elf at the Heritage House and fire truck rides compliments of Westport Volunteer Fire Department.

Boy Scouts sold Christmas trees and Town Supervisor Ike Tyler raised funds for town events with Hot Dogs with Ike.
