This Saturday, Lowertown St. Paul will get into the holiday spirit with Lowertown SantaCon V. The yearly pub crawl encourages folks to dress in their seasonal best, be it a classic look (elves, Santa, reindeer), ironic (Christmas work party wear, ugly sweaters), or something truly creative (Turducken, Dreidel monsters, and SantaChrist, anyone?). Along the crawl, revelers will be able to enjoy roving musical sets from from the Brass Messengers, performances from fire dancers (check Mears Park), and visits from Krampus, a beast who appreciates his Jager bombs as much as he enjoys punishing naughty children. Foxy Tann will MC. The party starts at Kelly's Depot, with stops along the way including the Black Dog, Bulldog, Station 4, and Senor Wong. For updates on where things are happening as they happen, follow the event live on Twitter via @santacon55101. Visit www.LowertownSantacon.info for more.
