Downtown Gainesville Santa Crawl
Downtown Gainesville Santa Crawl is a unique and fun way to celebrate the holiday season and help the children of the Gainesville community have a happier Christmas. Participants of the event are required to dress up in costumes related to the holiday season. The most popular costume is Santa or Mrs. Santa. However in past years, participants have been very creative and have come as candy canes, snowflakes and even reindeer. But don't worry, a Santa Hat or ugly Christmas sweater is acceptable. A donation of a toy or gift card is the admission to this festive pub crawl.
The different venues in downtown Gainesville offer specials to the Santa Crawl participants. Cover charges are waived for those dressed in holiday themed costumes. Happy Hour pricing and discounted menu items are often offered.
The event is usually held the first weekend in December and is always held in downtown Gainesville FL.
The toys and gift cards collected at the Downtown Gainesville Santa Crawl are donated to a local charity for distribution in the Gainesville community.
The 4th Annual Downtown Gainesville Santa Crawl is Saturday December 7th, 2013. Dust off your Reindeer and get your holiday costume ready – it’s time to crawl again! There are a few small changes this year, the event is on Saturday instead of Friday and a few new stops. There will be drink specials and lot of Ho,Ho, Ho-ing!
