"Parade"/Leprecon numbers down, police show of force downtown

The Leprecon event is underway but early afternoon there's nothing approaching the public spectacle of people stumbling around drunk at noon and the streets degenerating out of control.

A report on Hoboken Patch mentions a downtown bouncer saying there's much less people than in previous years due to there being no parade this year.

Talking Ed Note: That's going to anger the local parade committee here who said the parade had no connection to the problems of the event.

Here's an early video from our colleague at TheBoken.com.  Added law enforcement is making a strategic show of force.

TheBoken.com also has a photo essay to go along with its updated story.
