Last night around 8 o’clock our dog Oliver was going crazy barking at what he saw outside our window on 12th & Lovejoy. When we looked out of the window, we thought we were crazy. We saw a sea of Santa’s that was about 3 blocks long. There had to have been at least 300 hundred… most were wearing the wobbly-boot.
Might be a fun thing to take part in next year…
From their website:
SantaCon is put on by the Portland Cacophony Society and occurs worldwide. Portland’s caco society had Santacon for the first time in 1996, and was promptly in trouble with the cops. Just like the original Santas in S.F (which started 17 years ago).
THIS IS A 12-14 HOUR RAMPAGE! PACE YOURSELF!
It is NOT in any way a family friendly, kidsafe pro-christmas thing. No wonder or enlightenment or happy fuzzy memories. We won’t gather around singing Kumbaya and helping orphans find loving homes. We may sell the orphans on the black market and eat fuzzy things, but that’s about as close as it gets. Don’t bring your kids by to “see Santa” or anything like that, or we will call social services on you for being too abysmally stupid to care for any creature above Mollusk in the food chain. Most of us truly hate Xmas and all the moronic drivel that normal people spew out of their yap-holes every day from Thanksgiving onward. Most of the rest of the crowd at best tolerates the holiday. If you are seriously too stupid to get that, your Santacon is in Beaverton. Go there.
