Event Details

Last week was “Santarchy” with 1,000 Santa Clauses rampaging the streets of San Francisco. This Friday in San Jose it’s a bit more civilized and Santa can get his skates on in the “First Downtown Ice Claus Crawl”

Sport your most unique Santa costume and get to Downtown Ice, the temporary ice skating rink set up in downtown San Jose. Free admission to those in Santa costumes (hat, beard and red clothing) who bring a can of food or a cash donation.

Prizes: Prizes awarded for Santa costumes in the following categories: most unique, most authentic, most San Jose-centric and biggest crowd pleaser.

Join us immediately after skating, for the Claus Crawl:

Enjoy unique downtown restaurants and bars offering drink specials and prizes to those adorned in Santa costumes. Designated Reindeer drinks (non-alcoholic) will be free all night for those wearing reindeer antlers. The crawl starts at the Fairmont Hotel, next door to the ice rink, then moves onto multiple downtown restaurants and bars until 10pm.
