If anyone hasn’t quite exhumed their Christmas spirit yet this year, the holiday-themed and adults-only SantaCon, a rally of Santas landing in downtown Memphis on Saturday, might be the celebration to revive it. This will be the Bluff City’s first year for the event, which was founded in 1994 in San Francisco. Participants are required to dress up like Santa and address other participants as such, all while consuming alcoholic beverages at various locations. According to the original SantaCon organizers, Father Christmas partakers are also encouraged to bring gifts to give to strangers along the route.

SantaCon starts at noon at the Central BBQ on Butler Avenue, after which the participants will march towards Beale Street by 1 p.m. Four checkpoints in the area are Tater Red’s at 2 p.m., Coyote Ugly at 3 p.m., Hooter’s at 5 p.m., and finally, the Elvis statue in front of the MLGW building at 7 p.m.

More information for the Memphis event, including guidelines and a songbook of “Twisted SantaCon Carols,” is located on the SantaCon website.
