Santas and elves were jolly and merry as they packed out venues across the city during Saturday's Santa Claus Pub Crawl for Charity.
The event saw about 11,000 revellers bar hop through about 20 pubs, enjoying drinks, music and taking photos.
There was an array of costumes from Mr and Mrs Claus outfits, onesies, Hawaiian Santa shirts and even people dressed as Christmas trees.
This was the first year the event morphed into SantaFest, a three-day Christmas-themed festival catering for young and old alike.
Event organiser Neil Webster - who started the pub crawl with a group of friends to bring real Christmas cheer and raise funds for charity in the process - was thrilled with how the day went.
"Everyone was in a great mood and were well behaved," he said.
"A couple of people had little meltdowns but that is not many considering there were 11,000 people.
"It was a happy crowd and police were also impressed with everyone's behaviour."
Chimene Lindsay, 31, was one jolly reveller who makes the pub crawl a family affair each year.
She attended the event with her mother and sister.
"We always go as a family. It is our tradition and we look forward to it every year as it is a good cause," she said.
"My mum and I are best friends so we always do events like the pub crawl together.
"It was a really good atmosphere. It was busy, fun and everyone was surprisingly well-behaved, in a good mood and I didn't see anyone causing trouble."
Ms Lindsay, from Albion Park, said she felt good on Sunday morning as she didn't stay out too late.
She said she would definitely be back next year with her mum.
Mr Webster said some would be likely nursing a heavy hangover on Sunday however, the majority of crawlers drank responsibly.
"Everyone was enjoying themselves drinking," he said. "A few over do it but most drink responsibly.
"As there are so many people, it often takes a while for someone to get to the bar which helps stop over drinking but most of the time people have fun without needing to drink too much.
"People were happy and safe, and they enjoyed the entertainment."
Mr Webster said pub crawlers kept coming back to the event because of the "team mentality" it created.
"Everyone is in costume so you all feel like part of a team," he said. "You meet new people. There have been many people who have met their partners at the event.
"You also see the same people at the pub crawl every year. You say hello, have a photo and catch up. It is like a mini reunion every year."
Mr Webster said the crawl still attracted many newcomers every year too.
"People see all the photos on social media of people they know having a great time and they want to check it out next year," he said.
"Also with all good events, they get the notoriety and good reputation and people want to be a part of that."
Mr Webster said the rebranding and expansion of the pub crawl to include other family friendly events had been a success.
"We had the first outdoor cinema event in Lang Park last night which had 180 people attend which was good for the first year," he said.
"The SantaFest Christmas Carols on Sunday is expected to have 6000 people attend.
"We are also planning other events such as a corporate day, an event on Friday night or perhaps a family bike ride, all under the banner of SantaFest which is about donating to charity and giving back to the community.
"The opportunities to expand are endless."
Mr Webster said the total funds raised would be tallied this week expected it to be around $150,000.
