DALLAS Occupy Dallas protesters got close to the CityLights festivities downtown on Saturday.

About 100 people marched from their original camp at Pioneer Plaza to Main Street Garden Park, the site of an evening tree-lighting ceremony.

It's the first big Occupy Dallas demonstration since the city cleared out the group's campsite at a park near City Hall two days ago.

Demonstrators said that while the city took their camp away, they're still here and not going anywhere.

Police were prepared for trouble, but Saturday's march was peaceful.
