Tonight is the eve of the Feast of Saint Nicholas which can only mean one thing - all you naughty boys and girls better run and hide as the 4th Annual Pittsburgh Krampusnacht claws it’s way into Market Square starting at 6pm tonight!
The Krampus is Coming...
Europe has celebrated Santa's evil doppleganger for centuries with the hairy, horned, half-goat demon has been punishing bad little girls and boys every St. Nick's Eve. Organized by Pittsburgh’s own Professor EmCee Square of the It’s Alive Show, this year will be no different as the Krampus will make his appearance at Market Square tonight for photos at 7PM with the band Sleigher performing at 7:30, marking the start of the Krampus pub crawl sponsored by Straub Beer.
Also, the holiday market is also in full swing for any of those last minute gifts along with an ongoing karaoke contest is being held with the winner taking home a $1000 prize.
