MONTAUK - The Memorial Day parade in Montauk has been called off for the second year in a row.

The parade is usually held on the Montauk Green. Organizer Ken Walles tells Newsday that Montauk has become too crowded, causing police to have their hands full.

There is also a scheduling conflict as the annual art show takes place at the same time.

Walles says there will still be a Memorial Day flag-raising ceremony.
