A cold wintery day didn’t stop a cadre of Santas from storming downtown Riverhead for the third annual Santacon Pub Crawl.
The event, which started off slow but picked up steam as the sun set and the night grew colder, was set up in part to support a good cause. Proceeds from bracelet sales at Santacon benefitted RSVP Animal Welfare & Rescue Group, a nonprofit group that works against animal abuse and neglect. (more…)
An army of Santas will descend on the North Fork for downtown Riverhead’s very own version of the popular pub crawl SantaCon this December.
For those unfamiliar, SantaCon is a holiday themed pub crawl where participants dress up as Santa Claus, moving from one bar to the next. While the event is traditionally held in larger cities such as San Francisco, New York and London, smaller towns are embracing the concept. And unlike those larger SantaCon’s participants in Riverhead are not required to wear a full Santa suit — a hat or other festive garb will suffice.
