Supporters of the Occupy Wall Street movement have celebrated its sixth month with a march from the New York City park that demonstrators seized last fall.

With the city's attention focused on the huge St. Patrick's Day Parade many blocks uptown, the Occupy rally at Zuccotti Park on Saturday drew hundreds of people, many who gathered in the park in the evening.

The marchers left the park at around 1 p.m., heading down Broadway carrying signs and a large Statue of Liberty puppet. The crowd later returned to the plaza that had been the movement's home until it was cleared of tents by police officers in November.

Police say there were arrests but don't have a count yet.
