HOBOKEN - The complaints of too much partying, brawls and alleged sexual assaults have prompted Hoboken to make big changes in its St. Patrick's Day parade.

Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer says the report of two young women being sexually assaulted in Hoboken last weekend proves the parade has gotten out of hand.

Zimmer, along with the police and fire chiefs, announced next year's parade will be moved to a Wednesday in hopes of attracting a more manageable crowd.
