While there were a small amount of arrests, most of costumed party-goers were nicer than they were naughty as they spread holiday cheer with singing, dancing and drinking – a couple of arrests were loosely connected with the event which is vehemently a “non-profit, non-political, non-religious celebratory parade of Christmas cheer, goodwill, and fun.”
