Lowertown SantaCon was voted City Pages “Best Twin Cities Pub Crawl” 2011 and listed in 2013 by City Pages in "50 Reasons Why We Love Winter in Minnesota". This is our 6th year of Santastic Lowertown community goodness!
Lowertown SantaCon VI will be held on Saturday, December 14th, 2013.
Lowertown SantaCon is half spectacle, half pub crawl and half flash mob--that's one and a half things!--in the chill historic Lowertown district of Saint Paul, MN.
Come as Santa, come as an elf or reindeer or get creative and come as a Santasaurus, a Hanukkah Chicken, a Kwanza Ham...you get the picture.
Featuring Emcee Foxy Tann, the Brass Messengers brass band, the horn-ed Krampus with his wooden cage and his fire demons to take the naughty children back to his lair to roast on a spit and eat (See Wikipedia "krampus"), and a costumed cast of hundreds. Lowertown SantaCon is a real pub crawl (with a route) and the Brass Messengers band turns the night into a magical series of flash mobs at multiple venues in Lowertown's Art District. Like regime change, Santarchy begins at home.
