Today was the 14th 15th!! anniversary of Santacon, originally sponsored by the San Francisco Cacophony Society, and at least 1000 Santas took over 3 areas of town today: The “Ho on Haight” covered Haight Street, “Mastrobation” focused on Mission and Castro, and finally the Klassik Kringle track which covers Fishermans Wharf and North Beach.

(Santas flask is big… gotta keep warm on the sleigh!)

I figured I would go where there would be maximum tourist shock factor and off to the Wharf I sprang this morning.

What can be said about Santacon? There’s lots & lots of Santas.

Nothing can stop the RED TIDE! Ultimately this is split into 3 routes but merges later in the day — tonight at least close to 1000 Santiii converged into Yerba Buena Garden — (SFSanta tweets report terrorizing Westfield Mall and the Powell Street Cable car turnaround area)

Santa’s Agent force was definitely instrumental in keeping the Santa swarm from spilling into traffic, they assisted at crosswalks, and helped keep Santacon revelers from straggling off course.
