Find Hostels all over the World
World Santa Claus Congress
Bakken Amusement Park
It's summer time, but there is something weird going on around this time, actually starting today, the 24th of July. And definitely don't have to think it's some kind of joke, because of what you will read now, The annual summer World Santa Claus Congress features Santas from Europe, USA, Canada and Japan. Some five months before the big day, the Santas of the world gather with their helpers at Bakken Amusement Park, Copenhagen.
You might thing the world is going crazy, but this is after Christmas itself for them the most important event and the only time when they can meet to discuss important issues such as better rooftop parking conditions and standards of chimney-cleaning. This meeting will last 3 days, the congress will take a place in the world's famous and oldest Denmark's most amusing amusement park, Bakken. The programme usually runs from approx. 9 am to 5 pm on all four days.
Santas from all over the world will come to visit and discuss the "Santa thing" , the event has been held every summer since in 1957, serving as a professional and social forum for santas from around the world, featuring traditional paddling session in the Baltic, a parade through the city centre, open-air shows and plenty of Christmas dinners.
