There will be three events held for a SantaCon in three different places at the same time – Fort Lauderdale, Delray Beach and Miami. The SantaCon will be held on December 17 and it is expected that hundreds of wannabe Santa Claus are coming to visit. This is a great way to make up for the absence of snow in these cities.
The events are free and the participants are encouraged to wear a Santa suit or a costume of their choice as long as it is inclined with the holiday theme. These participants are then bar hopping all over the city. If you want to join in a low key costume, the best options are reindeer antlers and a choice of your own ugly Christmas sweater. In case the party Santa gets drunk after the festivities, Lyft has offered a $50 worth of coupon in order to get rides anywhere. All they have to do is enter the coupon code SANTACON into the app.
The SantaCon at Delray Beach will start at 8 pm on December 17 until 11 pm. This is free admission for all. It will be held at the Sandbar located at 40 South Ocean Blvd. different sort of Santas are welcome to have a group photo and start bar hopping to the western part going to Atlantic Avenue. The event might be free but the participants have the option to bring donations of gift toys for the toy drive that the Delray Beach Police Department is holding. According to one of the organizers, Lance Aker, the SantaCon in Delray used to be a small event. It started around six or seven years ago with only 15 participants. It has become a bigger event since then because of word of mouth and invitations.
Miami Santacon is going to be on December 17 at 6 pm. The venue is located at various bars including Sandbar Sports Grill, Taurus Beer and Whiskey House, Fat Tuesday, Barracuda Taphouse and Grill among many others.
If you are to travel to Fort Lauderdale Florida this weekend, you can join the SantaCon at Mangos Restaurant and Lounge located at 904 E. Las Olas Blvd. The event will start at 6 pm on December 17.
