MADISON, Wis. (AP) — After weeks of fighting for their right to party, an estimated 20,000 university students took to the streets Saturday for an annual block party that has been marred in previous years by riots, a man falling from a balcony and sexual assault.
Police spokesman Mike Hanson said the street party was considered to be over at 8 p.m., with officers going from house to house to warn the hosts to end the festivities or face citations.
The city initially scheduled the annual party on its traditional day — the first Saturday in May. But students protested, accusing the city of being party poopers because the date fell on the night before final exams, and fought to reschedule the date for this weekend.
