Hundreds of Santas are coming to town across the United States, and many will be drinking Christmas spirits.

Nearly 300 Santacons will be held from New York City to Los Angeles, and outside the U.S., in London and Beijing.

The events are a cross between a pub crawl and a mobile convention, with everyone dressed in Santa suits.

In New York, Santacon will be held on Saturday, but not everyone is happy with the event. Some bars will not let anyone dressed in red inside.

Last year, people in lower Manhattan complained about some of the revellers’ behaviour after a night of partying.
