Have you ever wanted to watch as Santas of all shapes and sizes take over Seattle? Well, SantaCon is back this year and it’s your best chance to see just that. Over the span of two weekends, you can parade through Downtown Seattle in your best Santa fit to help spread holiday cheer.

What exactly is this magical celebration? It’s much more than a pub crawl. Each year folks join a mass gathering of people dressed in Santa Claus costumes as they parade publicly on streets and in businesses in cities around the world. It’s all about spontaneity, creativity, and of course having a good old festive time.

On December 11th and 18th, you’re invited to paint the town red and white. You can expect live entertainment all day, free admission to 15+ venues, drink specials, a costume contest, professional photographers, and more! Best of all, you can hop in on the fun pretty much anytime between noon and midnight to pick up your wristband.

That being said, we recommend doing the whole day if you can so that you can really enjoy all the festive fun.
