SANTA takes over the longest night of the year in 2013!!
Yes, Santa likes to have a few drinks, but this is NOT just a barcrawl.
SantaCon is an annual mass gathering of people dressed in Santa Claus and other Holiday costumes parading publicly on streets and in bars in cities around the world. The focus is on spontaneity and creativity, while having a good time and spreading cheer and goodwill.
Sometimes known as Naughty Santas, Cheapsuit Santas, Santarchy, Santapalooza, and Santa Rampage, SantaCon incorporates elements of a flash mob in the context of cheerful bawdy and harmless behavior, the singing of naughty Christmas carols, and the giving of small gifts to strangers.
