(3.18) The Providence St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place Saturday, March 18th. The parade kicks off on Smith Street at Wyndham Avenue and continues down Smith, ending at the Statehouse. And by Statehouse, we mean Patrick’s Pub. Leading the parade will be the Grand Marshal, the Honorable Mary S. McElroy, and, should she twist her ankle and be unable to complete her duties, Deputy Grand Marshal Dan McGowan, who now covers the state for the Boston Globe, can step up.
Patrick’s Pub will be hopping all day today, St. Patrick’s Day, with music and corned beef, and then again on Saturday, with Erin’s Guild and more corned beef. The awning out front says “CÉAD MÍLE FÁILTE” which means, “A hundred thousand welcomes.” Learn how to pronounce it here.
According to the state, the parade begins at the oddly precise time of 10:14am lasting roughly (no, exactly) one hour.
Do not drink and drive.
