Upcoming Events

Two holiday institutions are happening in cities all over the world this weekend and throughout December. First there’s Santacon, the annual mob of hundreds of Santa suit wearing participants. Anyone with a Santa suit can participate! Then there’s Unsilent Night, Phil Kline’s parade of roving boomboxes, another everyone’s-welcome participatory event. Both events are happening this Saturday in New York City. Check the websites for details and for information on other cities. You can even organize your own if your city isn’t on the list.

Also, there are two Improv Everywhere-inspired events happening on Saturday that are being organized by local groups on the Urban Prankster Network. Seattle is having an Mp3 Experiment and Portland, Oregon is having a freeze.

Busy weekend!

The “freeze” craze started by Improv Everywhere’s Frozen Grand Central mission has now reached 70 cities in 34 countries and 6 continents (come on Antarctica, get with the program!) Agent Piskvor from Prague made a very cool map showing the locations of all the freeze missions. It’s a Google Map, so you can interact with it and click through to see the video for each city.

A couple of recent freezes of note include the first freeze in the Middle East:

Beirut, Lebanon

…and a freeze in Hong Kong where legislators and councilors from the local government participated.
