SouthieParade_MA1blog.jpgIt's time to celebrate the Irish this month, and 3 Massachusetts parades are planned for this Sunday March 15.

26th Annual Worcester St. Patrick's Day Parade – March 15, 12 p.m.
The Worcester St. Patrick's Day Parade celebrates the Irish of Central Massachusetts who began settling in the area as early as 1718. This year’s parade line-up includes an appearance by Lt. Governor Tim Murray, and you don't have to watch hungry of you head to the annual Irish Breakfast Buffet will be held just prior to the parade. Call for details: 508 755-1855

South Boston’s St. Patrick's Day Parade – March 15, 1 p.m.
Go green this Sunday and spend St Patrick's Day in the most Irish neighborhood in America for the South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade! Since 1804, South Boston residents have celebrated their heritage with a monstrous [almost-a-million-people-monstrous], cultural parade that features marching bands, pipe bands and other spectacular parade features. The parade begins at the Broadway 'T' Station and ends at Andrew Square. Check for details.

Scituate St. Patrick's Day Parade – March 15, 1 p.m.
Be a part of Scituate’s St. Patrick's Day Parade, which is organized to pay tribute to Scituate's long-held status as The Irish Riviera. It may be small, but it's proud. Call 781-545-6671 for details.

  1. Let us all try and remember this is a celebration in honor of a "Saint". Please look up the meaning in the dictionary. A saint who was called to go and preach the "Gospel " the only Gospel, and so people that share this truth have reason to celebrate, those that are not ready or quite understand what that means should do a little research, maybe they too may want to shed their earthly vices/disorders/addictions and follow what this Saint and all other Saints tried to reflect. God Bless us all and St. Patrick pray for us especially those most in need of God's Mercy. amen

  1. That includes you too...look up judgment in the dictionary. Try not to place judgment on us. Get the brick out of your __ and we will all raise a toast to good ol' St. Pat.
