These are the Santas you're looking for.
Hundreds of Valley residents dressed as Santa, reindeer, elves, and countless other holiday-inspired costumes (including Jesus Christ himself) invaded downtown Scottsdale on Saturday, December 17, for the annual Santarchy bar crawl. And they came to party and drink, and did so with gusto at such Scottsdale bars as Old Town Gringos, Pattie's First Avenue Lounge, Social Tap, Rockbar, and Wasted Grain.
