Saturday, December 14, 2013

It’s here again!!!!! SantaCon 2013 and it’s our 5 year anniversary!

Last year was insanely fun and we had a HUGE crowd of Santa’s (and other festive creatures) and this year will be even better!

NOW POSTED: the OFFICIAL route:

We will start ringing the sleigh bells and perform Christmas “Carol-aoke” (like karaoke but way more fun) at Molly McHugh’s at 6:00pm! (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Molly-McHughs-Irish-Pub/122823121065086)

6:30pm
We will follow the Gingerbread man to Preservation Alley for some more holiday festivities! This is where we will be passing out the voting cards for the costume contest contestants

8:00

Pose for the famous SantaCon Group Picture in Munn Park!

8:15pm
Head over to the street party at The Socialite (https://www.facebook.com/thesocialitedowntown) for FLIP CUP!!!! There will be live music, beer, more beer (among other Christmas beverages) and the costume contest! Woo Hoo!

The party goes till it’s time to head back to the Pole…the North Pole that is!

If you’re still not quite sure what SantaCon is (not sure how that is possible at this point), read below:

What is SantaCon, you ask? SantaCon is part flash mob, part procession, part bar crawl and part spreading holiday cheer. SantaCon is for adults – where guys & girls of legal age dress up like Santa and go cavorting around town for no better reason than the fact that it’s HUGE FUN!

So get out those red suits and join us for some reindeer games!!

Who: Anybody who dresses up as Santa, Santa’s elves, Santa’s Reindeer, Mrs. Claus or anything else holiday related. We need all kinds of Santa’s for our invasion…we need you Ninja Santa, how about
Pirate Santa and of course no SantaCon will be complete without a Cowboy Santa. Holiday apparel is mandatory! A Santa hat is not enough.

Buy a Santa suit. Make a Santa suit. Paint on a Santa suit. Borrow a Santa suit. No money? Be creative!
Glue cotton balls to red long johns. Make it purple. Make it pink.
Already have a Santa suit? Make a spare so Santa can assimilate strangers. REMEMBER SHARING IS CARING:-)

What: An afternoon adventure spreading joy and good cheer while enjoying a drink along the way.

Why: Because nothing is more fun than being part of a hundred Santas ho ho ho’ing around the city, surprising tourists, kids and bar patrons.

Where: We’ll be invading the streets and pubs of downtown Lakeland.
