The drinking got started early this morning and tonight thousands are headed to the bars to continue the party, but some are worried that this day of binge drinking is getting a little out of hand.
Dani Meyers and her friend Taylor Bednarek got started drinking at 10 Am this morning and they say things at the Pub Crawl can get a little rowdy.
"Last spring Pub Crawl we had one of our friends get tackled by cops and tased, he had tase marks on his back," said Taylor Bednarek, a college student at UW-Oshkosh.
Even though the weather is a little cooler than usual this year it's not stopping crawlers from getting things rolling. Before heading to the bars, parties are hosted at houses all throughout the downtown area.
Luke Telford lives on the street where most of the house parties are held and he says students and police should have a little more control over the situation.
"We've had young ladies urinating in our bushes. Walking up into our yard to urinate in the bushes," said Telford.
Public urination, jay walking and rowdiness are just some of the things Oshkosh police are keeping an eye out for.
