HOBOKEN, New Jersey -- The SantaCon bar crawl travels to Hoboken, New Jersey next Saturday, where it hasn't exactly been welcome.

In the past, thousands of people have descended upon the city's bars - with, at times, the crowds getting rowdy.

Fights leading to arrests and the cost of police overtime and cleanup have led to elected officials saying they would prefer SantaCon to end. However, it will continue this year - with the drinking scheduled to start at 10 a.m.

Hoboken's SantaCon was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, but returned in 2021 with a full vaccination requirement for indoor bars.
