This kind of Pub Crawl has been happening in cities around the country for 15 years or so. It was originally started by a small group of friends as a means of raising some Christmas spirit – and having some fun at the same time. Brian Young moved here from Denver, Colorado where he’d participated for years and brought the event to Dayton! The first year there were 14 people. Two years ago the event grew to 80 and last year it more than doubled. It was pretty amazing to watch over 150 Santas, elves, angels, reindeer wander through the Oregeon District.
This year’s even on Sat, Dec 12th promises to be even bigger and better! More prizes — more fun! No covers when dressed as Santa or festive holiday characters!
Cost of admission is a $10 unwrapped toy (or a $10 monetary donation), which will be donated to Montgomery County Children Services and Toys for Tots. The toys/money can be dropped off at The Dublin Pub or The Trolley Stop.
Costume contests are getting better every year! Dress up and be creative! Prizes are at stake!
The schedule is:
Dublin Pub: 6 to 7:30 p.m. (drop off toys)
Trolley Stop: 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. (drop off Toys and sober group picture)
Blind Bob’s: 8:30 to 10 p.m. (contest winners announced)
Tumbleweed: 10 to 11 p.m. (holiday shot specials)
Oregon Express: 11 p.m. to midnight (great dance band)
