Catch Worcester’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade This Sunday

Saturday, March 09, 2013

 

Worcester’s favorite annual parade is scheduled to go as planned this year, so be ready to dye that white stuff green for St. Patrick’s Day as bagpipes, marching bands, and food vendors fill the streets.

The annual Worcester County St. Patrick's Day Parade will be held this Sunday, March 10th on Park Ave, extending from Mill Street down to Highland Street, beginning at noon.

According to the parade website, the parade’s lineup is full of local organizations, schools, and some politicians, including two Democratic candidates vying for a chance to run for Kerry’s empty US Senate seat – Ed Markey and Stephen Lynch.

Besides bagpipes and drumlines, The Great Whiskey Rebellion will be there to give you a kick in your step. The group formed in Worcester and will be returning to their stomping grounds to get you moving. The band’s sound includes some traditional Irish sounds with rock and other high energy influences. The band will be playing at Beatnik’s on Sunday.

The parade also includes a best crowd contest, encouraging you to show your pride, make a banner, and compete. Best use of the color green, enthusiasm, and parade spirit will win you points. Judging is done by committee members during the parade, so get out there and be seen!

The parade committee is a non-profit, and committee members will be selling green beads along the parade route for all who want to make sure next year’s bash is just as great. All other vendors are private.

Brave the winter temperatures and celebrate with the city. Sunday is also daylight savings, so make sure to spring your clocks ahead one hour to ensure you catch all of the festivities!
