Santa Claus is looking for some helpers to run his Muskoka summer celebration.

The third annual SantaFest is kicking off this weekend and organizers are in need of volunteers.

Bracebridge Chamber Executive Director Brenda Rhodes says volunteers play the biggest part in making thisĀ event successful.

Anyone that works a three-hour shift or longer will also be fed during the event.

Rhodes says for families looking for some Christmas in July fun, there will be lots to do during the event for everyone.

SantaFest is on Wharf Road in Bracebridge this year and the summer parade will run down Manitoba Street around 11:00am.

The Santa Fun Run will kick off the parade as the group of Santas make their way down to the wharf.

The event runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm and you can find a list of the activities here.
