St. Patrick's Day is back
Remember St. Patrick’s Day? Does it seem like a distant memory?
Well, it’s coming back to Providence, 12 days after the fact.
Tomorrow at noon, the Providence St. Patrick’s Day Parade sets off on Smith Street at Elmhurst Avenue.
The event was postponed on March 8 because of a rainy forecast.
This year, grand marshal and former hockey star James Bennett will lead the parade down Smith Street to the State House reviewing stand.
It's the 15th year that Irish culture has been celebrated along Smith Street,” City Councilman Terrence M. Hassett said in a statement.
“Although this parade is a little late, good weather and plenty of entertainment will round out a great day of festivities.”
For more information, call Patrick Griffin, president of the Parade Committee, at 751-1553.
