Santas drink their way from Olympic Village to downtown Vancouver

Dec 14 2019, 2:07 pm

Dozens of people dressed in Santa suits joined the annual Vancouver SantaCon on Saturday.

The free event takes a group in high Christmas spirits on a walk around Vancouver, stopping at several bars and pubs for a drink along the way.

“SantaCon is a non-commercial, non-political, nonsensical Santa Claus convention,” event organizers wrote on Facebook.

The group of Santas stopped at Brewhall in Olympic Village first, and continued north during the afternoon.

Organizers told participants they needed to come dressed in full Santa garb. Just a Santa had would not cut it. Some people showed up in more creative costumes, like one person dressed as Jack fromΒ Nightmare before Christmas.
