Ready to see some green (March 17)

March 13, 2010

This morning we saw a few St. Pat’s racers picking up breakfast at the Bread. Co., and their visits were overlapping with folks getting warm drinks to fortify themselves for the parade downtown. The Irish Village on Kiener Plaza is still going on, with live music until 6 p.m., but I haven’t been able to get my kids interested in much outdoors since last weekend. They’d rather be inside playing computer games — and I have to admit I don’t much blame them!

It’ll be a lot nicer on Wednesday (March 17) for the Ancient Order of Hibernians’ 26th annual parade in Dogtown, along Tamm Avenue. It’s supposed to be back in the 50s for the noontime parade. Luck of the (truly) Irish, I guess! There are more than 100 units in the parade, including many Irish dance schools and heritage groups. But make sure you park legally (the parking lots south of Manchester are a good bet, though you’ll have to hike back uphill to reach the parade route). And be sure to leave glass containers at home.
