A lesser-known holiday tradition, the Krampuslauf

On the naughty/nice spectrum of behavior, most of us in Florida fall into the former category. So proper punishments will be meted out Sunday at the Milk District’s KrampusFest.

This annual holiday event throws the spotlight on Santa’s lesser-known European ride-or-die Krampus, infamous for administering comeuppance instead of gifts to bad children — in the form of coal, spankings or outright kidnapping.

The daylong event features live music, food and beverages, seasonal vendors and the signature Krampuslauf parade and costume judging (and we can personally vouch for the quality and creativity therein).

Krampusfest takes over the Milk District — particularly Sideward Brewing — on Sunday, Dec. 4 starting at 2 p.m. The event is free.
