Nearly 150 runners and race walkers, as well as about two dozen dogs, participated in the Fourth Annual Reindeer Run 5K Saturday in downtown Vicksburg.

The event is a fundraiser for Paws Rescue, a no-kill animal rescue that finds homes for abandoned, neglected or stray cats and dogs. In addition to the 5K run, a postrace pet parade celebrated the guests of honor, many of whom were dressed in Christmas sweaters and costumes.
