While SantaCon is meant for revelers to spread holiday cheer, unfortunately, sometimes the good times can get out of hand when alcohol is involved.

The official SantaCon organization encourages pub-crawl participants to have a great time and is working with the city officials and the New York City Police Department to make sure people stay out of trouble.
