12:00 PM – Meet at Union Square, get your toy to the fire truck, hang out and mix with the public, meet other Santa’s and whatnot then head out to one of the routes.
3:00 PM -  Meet up at Duboce Park for a SNOWBALL FIGHT.  Yes, you heard right, Santa will be there with real snow.  Here is a map,-122.433443&spn=0.010228,0.021136&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&t=m&z=16&iwloc=A
so you know where the park is.  DON’T be a jerk during the snowball fight.  The idea is to have fun, not hurt people.  Santa encourages you to come up with other Reindeer Games and activity’s other Santa’s can join in on.  Lets have fun.
4:00 PM – Head back the bars, parties or go home.
Routes – All Day Parties and After Parties.
Not all bars want to be listed here.  Some bars are thinking of banning Santa.  Don’t be the Santa that gives Santacon a bad name.  Don’t be an asshole. The listed bars are the ones who are really looking forward to seeing Santa.  TREAT THEM WELL.  Most bars in the area have been warned/know that Santa is coming.
Thanks to the Santa out there who took all the bars on the routes and put them on a map for you here.
