Saturday was the Day of Hundreds of Santas here in San(ta) Francisco as Santacon 2007 swept through the city, flooding bars and restaurants–but mostly bars–with thirsty, red-suited patrons. This, apparently, is what Burning Man types do in the off-season.
Some highlights include the Santas’ trip to hooters, where the staff got a momentary respite from the gaze of the non-santa customers. A few hundred also hopped a ferry to Oakland. There’s nothing like a boatload of Santas cruising across the bay.
A brief search on Flickr yielded some photostreams that we’re linking here as well. Because Santacon is about the memories–which must be captured on film as they do not exists in the minds of the inebriated participants.
