The Many Santas (And Frosties) Of SantaCon

The worldwide event took over Pike Place Market Saturday.

SantaCon, the annual mass gathering of people dressed up as Santa (with a smattering of gingerbread men and Frosties thrown in for good measure) went down at Pike Place Market on Saturday. Seattle SantaCon said about 2,000 people came out for the Seattle event, which is based on a San Francisco tradition dating all the way back to 1994.

Photographer Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren was there to capture the festivities.
