Santa Takes Over San Francisco

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the December 22nd, 2008

Santacon aka Santarchy, a jolly rampage of hundreds maybe thousands of Santas, is an annual tradition that occurs in cities all across the globe. Nowhere is it more diverse and well attended than in San Francisco, where the tradition started some 15 years ago when the Cacophony Society decided that Christmas should have a more noble purpose than buying & consuming. With the tradition firmly mature, we take a ride along the “Klassic Kringle” route where Santa runs into bewildered tourists, reindeer dogs and groups of festive bards. Sit back, enjoy the ride and make plans to join the red menace next year.
