SantaCon is celebrated in 302 cities and 41 countries.
What is SantaCon you ask?
SantaCon is an annual mass gathering of people dressed in Santa Claus costumes parading publicly on streets and in bars in cities around the world. The focus is on spontaneity and creativity, while having a good time and spreading cheer and goodwill. – Wikipedia
SantaCon.info was founded in 2008 by Santa Ian (webmaster) to keep track of a few SantaCons in the eastern USA for himself and his friends. As more & more people/santas found the site useful, Santa Ian decided to take on the bigger responsibility of running the site as a service to santas around the world.
SantaCon is coming to Norwich, Hartford, Stamford, Bridgeport Connecticut and here are the details

Where: Black Rock – The Ave
That’s Right – BRL will be spreading our Christmas joy throughout Black Rock once again with one of our favorite events of the year SANTACON!! So shine your shoes, bleach your beard and pack in that belly cause its Santa Time!!
Date: December 7, 2013
Locations: Murphy’s (11AM – 4PM), Bradford’s (Loft will be open at 4PM), SBC, Black Bear, and Bar Q
Due to the onslaught of Santa’s from last year, I won’t be posting specific times to hit the bars. Instead I will only post specials. I will also highly encourage a start at Murphy’s around noon and to move southward from there. Ending the night at the Hideaway Cafe isn’t a bad idea either
SantaCon will start at The Harp and Dragon at 130 Main St, move to Billy Willson’s at 57 Broadway, and end at Chacer’s Bar and Grill at 78 Franklin Street. Our goal is to fill Downtown Norwich with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus Entertainment for this event will include bands and DJs!
