From the Facebook page, SantaCon can only be explained as “a non-denominational, non-commercial, non-political and non-sensical Santa Claus convention that occurs once a year for absolutely no reason. It’s your chance to spread holiday cheer in the most magical and absurd way possible”. AKA the Bar Crawl of all Bar Crawls. SantaCon NYC is a way to dress up in holiday outfits, parade around Manhattan drunk out of your mind, and if you don’t pass out before the afterparty, dance your ass off in Brooklyn. Sound too good to be too?
…Well it’s happening.
For those of you philanthropic at heart, SantaCon also has amicable charity influence. Last, SantaCon raised $10,000 for Toys for Tots and donated over 6,000 lbs of food to Manhattan and Brooklyn food banks. The charitable mayhem continues tomorrow!
