SantaCon is finally coming to Buffalo, New York! We found it odd that for a city that comes together for just about anything that may result in fun and a little alcohol, it hadn’t been done yet, but have no fear, Buffalo will now be joining the mere 200 locations in 28 countries and counting.
Buffalo Santa’s unite! Saturday, December 17th, noon at Niagara Square. Remember your cameras as we know this is sure to be an epic day…and we know some of you may need a little help remembering. Join us for the after party during the “North Pole Stroll” which includes bars and restaurants in Downtown Buffalo starting at 1pm. Registration will only be $10 or a new toy donation to benefit the Boys & Girls Club & includes free entrance, food & drink specials. Click this to register!
SantaCon is a mass gathering of people dressed in Santa Claus 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. Something like a Santapalooza or Santa Rampage, SantaCon incorporates a day of cheerful bawdy and harmless behavior while friends, family and strangers will …gather together to sing Christmas carols around the streets of Buffalo.
Don’t just show up in a hat! This is Santacon! So for the love of Rudolph wear a Santa costume (or something Christmas-y)! Get a Santa suit. Buy a Santa suit. Make a Santa suit. Everyone else will be wearing a costume of some sort and we don’t want you to feel lame. Get creative with your costume.. make modifications! Pirate Santa, Super Santa, James Bond Santa, Biker Santa, Doctor Santa, Samurai, Hanukkah Harry, Sugar Plum Fairy, Reindeer, Terminator Reindeer, Elf…you get the idea. Let’s show them what Buffalo is capable of.
Families, don’t feel left out! Santa thinks of everyone. After meeting at the Square, head over to the Niagara Holiday Market for free ice skating all day. You can also catch the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra at 2pm and receive free hot chocolate or coffee! One rule..you must be in your Santa/costume attire!
