Ventucky SantaCon 2: Singing in the Rain?

Subject: Save Santa! A SantaCon Bicycle Ride in the rain?

It is pouring rain here in Ventucky and the forecast for tomorrow is MORE RAIN! So whatcha gonna do?

This is NOT a Santa Skunk ride (you know how you get that stripe down your back when  you ride a bike when it’s been raining?)

Ms Claus does not want mud marks all over Santa’s suit so close to Christmas Eve! 

Even if Santa’s suit is simply a hat and a red thrift store sweat suit with fur glued on it in appropriate places and black boots and belt! Go here for directions on how to make a thrift store Santa Suit:  

So here’s the latest SantaCon plan: meet near the Pier/Promenade Playground around 1pm. Then we’ll be prowling or music and mayhem and protection from the rain if necessary. Our agenda includes Taco Hut (that’s where we’ll have lunch), Eric E’s, Aloha, the big hotel, then along Main. The Watermark has music from 2-5pm and we’ll see where else we can find music to dance to.

If the weather permits, we’ll ride up Ventura Ave and over to Art City.

Download and bring your own copy of the Santacon Carol Book here:

(AND YES, you MUST wear a costume. NO, you can NOT get by with a red shirt and Santa hat. It’s about the FUR!! See in the picture of us from 2009? Fur! White Fur! Lots of it!

BE CREATIVE, ya lazy bum! Jeans, in particular BLUE jeans, will be removed and destroyed without warning. Don’t tempt us. Red jeans might make the grade.

Bring innocent toys to hand out to kids and naughty toys to give to adults.


Santa doesn’t get arrested. Always remember the four F’n rules of Santarchy:
(1) Don’t f* with kids.
(2) Don’t f* with cops.
(3) Don’t f* with security.

Please RSVP and comment to let us know if we should watch out for you and whether you’ve been naughty or nice.

Enjoy the photos by Daniel Boggs iPhone from the First Friday SantaCon; hopefully they will motivate you!

PS Yes, you Santa, you do need to wear the monkey suit…

    While you can never have too many Santas, we love elves, reindeer, etc!

    Unfortunately, right now, it’s really really soggy out and it’s hard to imagine the weather and the town will be conducive for riding tomorrow…

    Maybe we should just all meet at the parking garage?
