Thank you to all Santas, Elves, Reindeer, Robots, Pirates, Bananas and Ho’s! + the 120+ Santas that danced to Michel Jackson at Ducketts! (I know there is video of this). This one will go down in the books. Not sure the exact number of Santas, but feel its safe to say over 1000 of us took over NoPo!
+++ Did anyone notice the lack of presence of the Portland Police Department as well as any news crews? Ho! Ho! Ho?
On a sour note… if you were the Santas that tried to duck out on a large bill at Lovely Hula Hands…. we are looking for you. We work hard to not only organize these events but try hard to create relationships with the communities and businesses we have events in and around. You are the reason the downtown bars do not want us there any more. You are the kind of people that give our events a bad name. There are a few very angry Santas that would like to have a word with you.
