It’s Happening, Santas! SantaCon kicks off tomorrow morning at 11:30am with the Santa Suit-up at a single location: The Local! (Note: There is no Wudaokou starting point this year!) Bring your holiday best – layered for the cold, of course – and be ready for some serious holly-ing & jolly-ing!
After we’ve wound our way through the city, the sleigh ride will come to an end at 4 Corners with a Nice List Throwdown for all of the good little boys, girls & others, featuring a roof-raising performance by Beijing legends Tavey Lean and the Solid Gold Dream Machine! Expect Santas to make it here by 10:30pm, with specials on offer for those still in their holiday attire!

After folks have had a chance to gather together at The Local, Santa will send out a message letting everybody know when it’s time to move on and the the party will head out into the streets. Messages will be dispatched from the North Pole throughout the day revealing new locations, so listen for shouts from Santa’s helpers and look for messages on WeChat to help you find your way!
See you soon, Santas!
