Don’t be surprised to bump into hordes of jolly red-suited men, elves and Santarinas at Boat Quay this weekend.
SantaCon, the worldwide Christmas-themed bar crawl comes to Singapore for the first time and it will be making the riverfront nightlife haunt Santa’s workshop.
The event will take place from 7pm till late on 20 December and from 10am to 3am on 21 December.
Around 3,000 partygoers — dressed as Santa Claus, Santarinas, elves, reindeer — are expected to attend the festive event - which has its roots in Denmark and has become a fixture on the streets and bars of New York and San Francisco - where they will go on a pub crawl in the vicinity and also take part in various activities.
A Miss Santabella Pageant will be held on 21 Dec, where 15 women will battle it out to be the face of Santacon Singapore.
Revellers can also take part in the Santa Hunt, a Christmas-themed treasure hunt to be held along the riverfront.
The Last Stag Standing drinking competition contest will also see participants pit themselves against one another at the Jagermeister Arena.
