There were fewer arrests during Saturday's St. Patrick's Day celebrations in Hoboken after the parade was replaced with a pub crawl.

Police say that 34 people were arrested and 136 were taken to the hospital in 2011.

City officials estimate there were half as many arrests this year and 53 injuries.

Organizers canceled the parade after city officials wanted it moved to Wednesday for public safety reasons.
