The annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, now marking its 40th year, will roll through Rochester this Saturday, back along its traditional route. The last two parades have used a different route due to the East End construction filling in the Inner Loop, but this weekend's parade will return to its original starting point at East Avenue and Alexander Street. The parade heads west and ends at West Main Street and Plymouth Avenue. Bars and restaurants along the route (especially in the East End) will be packed, so make your parade plans early and look for reservations wherever possible.
The Rochester St. Patrick's Day Parade will take place Saturday, March 11, in downtown Rochester. Parade begins at 12:30 p.m. For more information, check out rochesterparade.com.
