Santa was easy to recognize, at least from the waist up. He was wearing his normal red outfit. But Santa was wearing a kilt and riding a unicycle in Portland, Ore. He was playing bagpipes too.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Santa Claus was doing some weird stuff in Portland, Ore. He was dressed like his usual self from the waist up. But waist down he was in a kilt. In his right hand, he had presents. In his left hand, bagpipes - flaming bagpipes - he was playing while riding a unicycle. Some say this wasn't actually Santa. It was a local street performer named Brian Kidd. But we know it was just Santa doing his part to keep Portland weird. It's MORNING EDITION.
