POLL: How Are You Celebrating Hoboken LepreCon?
The day formerly known as "parade day" is coming up on Saturday. What are you doing?
A new initiative—"LepreCon," a variation on New York City's "SantaCon"—has been started and thousands of people have notified on multiple Facebook events that they're coming to Hoboken on Saturday.
Just like last year, the police department will likely be working over time on Saturday, to keep all the visitors and house parties in check. All the officers will be on call on that day.
Among the drunken, criminal activity from last year were two sexual assaults, one of which allegedly took place in a downtown senior building. After that happened, Mayor Dawn Zimmer announced she would not allow the parade to happen on a Saturday anymore.
With the influx of thousands of out-of-towners to Hoboken's bars and house parties, we're asking you how you plan on spending Saturday. Let us know in poll and the comments!
