Putting The Leper In Leprechaun

very irish Smilin’ John from The Bucket (this is not him, I don’t think, I hope not) wants to remind readers that Pawtucket always gets a jump on the drinking season by holding their parade a week earlier than everyone else. Starring the Rev. Joseph Paquette as St. Patrick, the parade starts at Jenks Junior High on Division Street (near McCoy Stadium) and somehow ends up at Pawtucket City Hall.  There is a post-parade party at the Pawtucket Armory with food, beverages and Irish things for sale. Music by the Tom Lanigan Band. Admission $2, kids under 12 free. [ProJo has schedule and route for tomorrow, as well as next weekend’s parades.]

Parade Saturday Noon (rain or shine)
