Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day Parade Replaced by LepreCON! and Lepre-con 2012
The Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day Parade was cancelled by the parade committee this year after they did not want to move the parade to Wednesday as the Mayor had requested due to public safety concerns. Without the parade, it appears the party is still going on with at least three groups on Facebook getting large numbers of RSVPs for Hoboken’s Lepre-con 2012 or Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day in general.These totals are as of 8:30am 1/23/2012.
The breakdown goes as follows…
Hoboken’s LepreCON with 777 RSVPs:
Hoboken’s Lepre-Con 2012 – this is the largest group so far with 3,443 RSVPs:
Hoboken’s St. Patrick’s Day 2012 – 2,100 RSVPs:
If you add up these three groups alone it totals up to 6,320 people that indicate they are coming to Hoboken on Saturday March 3rd. There is probably some double counting amongst the groups but several thousand people among that have already said yes is a sign that there will be a big party in Hoboken with or without the parade. Stay tuned!
