SantaCon kicked off this morning in Times Square under a cloud of controversy, but revelers there were in a happy — and what seemed — a sober but caffeinated mood.
While people have been calling out the bad behavior that is probably relatively minor among tens of thousands of Kris Kringle revelers overtaking parts of mid-town Manhattan (Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood nipped SantaCon from having the sleigh touch down there), most people seem to view this as a fun social gathering with friends.
Also, the event raises tens of thousands of dollars for charity.
From a photographer’s standpoint, it’s a great event to shoot thousands of people dressed in similar themed costumes, all having a great time. Here are some images from this morning, with more hundreds more that can be seen on my website.
