PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – The streets of downtown Peekskill will be red with holiday cheer Saturday as the SantaCon Pub & Eat Crawl returns to the city.
The event starts at 6 p.m. at Division Street Grill and will make its way to six other downtown eateries.
SantaCon is a pub crawl where crawlers dressed as Santa (or other creative, holiday-inspired costumes) receive special discounts along the way. Many participating downtown shops are offering 10 percent discounts this holiday season to shoppers with a free "Peekskill Makes Me Merry" coupon or button available at the Chamber of Commerce, 1 S. Division St.
SantaCons have become a global phenomenon , and are done in 271 locations in 37 countries, including such unlikely places as Da Nang, Vietnam, Busan, South Korea, Dubai, UAE and Guangzhou, China.
SantaCon does come with some guidelines, and revelers are asked to celebrate responsibly by not drinking and driving. If the Santas happen to get tired along the way, SantaCon crawlers in costume will receive a free holiday latte from The Peekskill Coffee House, 101 S. Division St.
