Hi, drunk Santas!

Are you Santa enough to drink your way from downtown to the North Pole (aka The Banks) in a costumed, group bar crawl?

Put on a red suit and prepare yourself to imbibe a night’s worth of milk and cookies (aka alcohol) as you and more than 5,000 Santas stop at 40-plus venues across downtown and Over-the-Rhine.

Check out a tip sheet online for how to be your best Santa and a lyric sheet of songs the group will be singing. Remember, this is about the holiday spirit, so don’t drink and drive and don’t be a dick and mess with cops, kids, security or other Santas. Proceeds benefit The Cure Starts Now.

Noon Saturday. $10 online registration; $15 day of. Starts at JACK Casino, 1000 Broadway St., Pendleton, cincinnatisantacon.com
