Date: Saturday December 22, 2018
Last year this was a SOLD OUT EVENT!!! Join us for the 2nd Annual Sloppy Santa Stroll around the City of Salem, MA stopping at a slew of restaurants, shop + bars that made this years “NICE LIST“!
What better way to kick off the Christmas weekend then dressed up in a Santa Suit with hundreds of other Saint Nicks spreading the Christmas spirit over a variety of libations.
Last year, at our inaugural SOLD OUT event, more than 500 Santa’s took the streets of Salem and had the jolliest of times. Due to the popularity of this event, to accommodate more people and involve more of Salem’s finest establishments we’ve decided to move the event from Friday night to a Saturday afternoon. We’ll be offering more stops and some shops to the list, which is new this year.
Come visit Salem, learn about it’s rich history, do some shopping, drink, eat and “be merry“.
At the first location, TBD, you will receive your Santa Suit (including a jacket, pants, belt, beard & hat) to stroll through the scenic streets of Salem & a High5EM wrist band to prove your “real Santa” status to partake in all the perks of each stop. A variety of these participating restaurants, shops + bars will be offering something special just for you Santa’s!
*Wrist bands can be purchased for just $10 to grab all the steals/deals if you’re not interested in the Santa Suit.
