What’s Happening This Weekend

irishAs we know St. Patrick’s Day is Monday, March 17th.  Many places will be holding their St. Patrick’s Day parade’s this coming weekend.

Hartford will hold their parade March 15th at 11:00 a.m. Come down to the parade route early and get your seat! The parade begins at Capitol Avenue by the State Capitol, takes a left on Main Street, a left on Asylum, a left on Ford Street, and then ends by the Memorial Arch. The parade is held rain or shine.

New Haven will hold their parade March 16th at 11 am. This year, due to construction on Chapel Street, units will gather on Edgewood Avenue at the corner of Sherman Avenue, and march to Howe Street, before turning right toward Chapel Street for the customary final stretch.

Bridgeport will be holding their St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 17th, at 1 pm.

Looking to get away for the day next weekend you could head down to Mystic to celebrate and enjoy their St. Patrick’s Day parade, held March 23rd at 1 pm.

This coming Friday, March 14th from 6-8pm, Downtown Stafford will have their monthly Arts on Main event.  The weather looks like it will be good for the evening.  So be sure to head down and stop by the local businesses to check out some art and music.

To get you in the spirit we thought we would share a little video of tradition Irish music from Ireland.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
