Santas hit NYC streets for annual pub crawl charity
Costume-clad party goers stormed New York City streets early Saturday for SantaCon's annual bar crawl for charity.
Santas used a SantaCon app and social media to find each other in the Big Apple.
SantaCon kicked off at 10 am at Pier 84 in Manhattan.
Sloshed Santas stormed the Big Apple, bar-hopping across Manhattan and Brooklyn and turning city sidewalks into woozy seas of red and white, the New York Daily News reported.
Hundreds of beard-clad boozehounds took part in SantaCon's annual pub crawl to raise cash for charity.
"It's been amazing, except for the lines," 28-year-old Nick Blaszczyk, who recently moved to New York from Detroit, said.
Blaszczyk, the lone elf in a sea of Santas, heard about SantaCon through "word of mouth and Twitter."
Revelers also used a SantaCon app to know which bar to go to, and at what time.
A portion of the bars' proceeds go to charity. SantaCon raised 10,000 dollars for Toys for Tots last year and donated more than 6,000 pounds of food to Manhattan and Brooklyn food banks.
The bash ends in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
