 Didn’t know Cincinnati has an annual holiday-inspired flash mob full of barhopping, Christmas-caroling Santas? Well, we do and you can be a part of it. Kris Kringles take over Fountain Square around noon Saturday to spread a little Christmas cheer to all. The Santas will receive texts and tweets all day long, directing them when and where to show up next. You can come see the St. Nick pack make their rounds through 20 venues in 12 hours, but if you are more of the hands-on type, send an email expressing your interest to [email protected] All you need to participate is a Santa suit (Mrs. Claus is acceptable, while elves are frowned upon), a cell phone access and a sack to hold candy canes to pass out to children. If being the jolly old man in the red suit is new to you, check out www.cincinnatisantacon.com to download a few tips, as well as a PDF of the carols they’ll be singing. Whether you decide to watch or be a Santa, this festive pub-crawl is bound to bring plenty of Christmas spirit to everyone.
