SantaCon 2013 Vancouver

DH Vancouver Staff Nov 27, 2013 10:55 am

On Saturday, December 14, 2013 the streets of Vancouver will be overrun by hundreds of people dressed as Santa Claus. It’s all part of the annual worldwide gathering called SantaCon.

For those of you wondering what SantaCon is, in essence it is a mass gathering of people dressing up as Santa Claus in the streets and at bars. For more info, check out their website.

It’s not a political statement, although some in Vancouver and other cities have tried to make it into one over several occasions. In the end, it’s just a bunch of grown-up people having fun and celebrating the holiday season.
