There probably won't be any Batman costumes or outlandish Aquaman tights at this "Con" event but there will be lots of beards!

Varick Street in Utica comes to life for the 2nd Annual "SANTACON" coming up on December 20th. Dress up as your favorite Christmas character and spread some Holiday cheer while you're parading around the brewery district!
This is going to be the Winter party of the year! Registration is from noon-1 at the Saranac Brewery and $5 gets you a wristband for a free beer and admission to all your favorite Bars on Varick Street. There's gonna be a parade on Varick at 1 and a pub crawl to follow! All proceeds will benefit Mother Marianne's Westside Kitchen
You can get more details on their Facebook page!
There's another party in town but this one's for ladies only!
