Youll never understand Santa until youve walked a mile in his boots, so what are you waiting for? Put on his boots and his hat, suit, beard and various other festive accoutrements and join up with a bunch of other St. Nicks for SantaCon 08, a Denver Cacophony Society event created for the simple purpose of having fun like only Santa can. Theres really no leaders no one is in charge, nobody owns it, explains Saint A. Clause, chief instigator of the event. Its pretty free-form, and its based on the contributions that people make. Its not for the weak at heart. You really do have to be committed to looking stupid, being unusual and being a participant.
Make sure youre decked out in full Santa kit just a hat is not enough then meet up with your fellow Santas at 11:30 a.m. today at the Blue Bonnet, 457 South Broadway. From there, the group of jolly old elves will walk, use public transportation and maybe even take a sleigh ride around town to make merry mis-chief, handing out misfit toys to passersby along the way. It could go late, so prepare accordingly. Visit http://denver.cacophony.org for suggestions and more info.
