Lowertown SantaCon MC Foxy Tann gets a hug from an elf at the first SantaCon in 2008.

One part bar crawl, one part costume party and one part spectacle, the five-years-strong Lowertown SantaCon features roving musicians and festivities at various stops throughout the day. Emceed by burlesque diva Foxy Tann, the night includes performances by the Brass Messengers and the Mears Park Fire Demons as well as appearances by Christmas beast-devil Krampus. Stops include Kelly's Depot Bar, the Bulldog, Barrio, Station 4 and Señor Wong, plus the all-ages Black Dog Coffee & Wine Bar. (5:30 p.m. Sat. Free. Lowertown, St. Paul. www.lowertownsantacon. info.)
