New York Joins 300 Cities Hosting SantaCon

Posted: Dec. 11th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Despite its sketchy place on the naughty or nice list and a nefarious record for inducing trouble, New York will host SantaCon this December 15th, officially adding it to the list of nearly 300 other cities hosting the infamous Santa get together.

And this past weekend in Los Angeles, they visited the space shuttle en masse at the California Science Center.
