To no great surprise, SantaCon Amherst is not going to happen.
Almost certainly due to the Select Board threat last Monday to hold (both) idiot downtown bar businesses responsible should anything go wrong.
And with 200 college aged youth, on the last day of classes, all dressed up as Santa's, crawling downtown bars, what could possibly go wrong?
UPDATE: Saturday morning 7:00 AM
And nothing did go wrong. Overall a rather uneventful overnight. Well, except:

Tonight APD and ACPD will be on alert for Crossett Christmas, where UMass kids usually arrive in swarms to take over Amherst College.
