Another Asbury Park Santacon is in the history books, and it was epic! We had great weather, amazing people, incredibly generous donations, super creative costumes, tons of positive press coverage, and wonderful support from the Asbury Park community. We also had the Jersey Shore Roller Girls as helpers, and they did a great job! Please keep sharing all your photos and spread the word about this awesome event.

I started the Asbury Park Santacon a couple years ago, but I want you all to know that this year’s event was the result of a handful of people working anonymously in their spare time to plan, coordinate, promote, and otherwise organize a pretty large undertaking. It isn’t easy, and it isn’t glamorous, but it feels really good when it all comes together and everyone’s having fun and supporting the community.

If you want to be part of the Santa fun next year, and think you can contribute spare time between September and December, send me a private message. We’re looking for people that are willing to work without needing to be in the spotlight. One of the things I’m really passionate about is that Asbury Park Santcon isn’t about who puts it together. It’s really all about the participants: You all, who come and bring your donations and friends, spend your money, and spread the word. We always want to focus on the event, not who organized it.

So hit me up if you want my job. I’m taking applications. It pays nothing, but the feeling it gives you is priceless!
