4th Annual Lowertown SantaCon
'Twas the weekend before Christmas and all through St. Paul, all the creatures were stirring in a drunken free-for-all. This Saturday, festive anarchy will ensue at the fourth annual Lowertown SantaCon. Part bar crawl, part holiday spectacle, this event features folks dressed like Santa, elves, reindeer, and Krampus, a devilish Christmas demon of sorts. As usual, the happening will change bars approximately every hour, with the Brass Messengers serenading revelers on their way to the next location. Stops are planned for Heartland, Kelly's Depot Bar, Black Dog Coffee & Wine Bar (where the hop will take a moment to be all-ages and family-friendly), Barrio, Bulldog, Senor Wong, and Station 4. Come in costume for drinks specials, and check @santacon55101 on Twitter or text "follow santacon55101" to 40404 for updates on where the party's headed should you be joining a little late.
