St. Patrick's Day Parade

Signs around town announce that on March 12th, we can expect a little local color in a shade of green when the St. Patrick's Day Parade marches through town.

There's not a lot of detail online, but Moffly Media confirms that it begins at noon and our Grand Marshal will be Carl Shanahan (founder of the band Wild Geese).

The Stamford Advocate reports that the parade route will start on North Street between Summer and Bedford and roll along Summer Street toward Main.

The parade will include 80 marching bands and will be followed by a party in the Old Town Hall with Irish dancers along with an Irish band. I have been wondering what's behind that crazy new wall in the Old Town Hall (hey, that rhymes!), and this is a great opportunity to find out.
