City of Pawtucket Celebrates 35th Annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade

PAWTUCKET– For the 35th year, Pawtucket residents, city officials, elected leaders and visitors gathered to celebrate the first in a series of St. Patrick’s Day parade celebrations around the state.

The parade stepped off from Division Street behind McCoy Stadium and proceeded along Walcott Street en route to Pawtucket City Hall on Roosevelt Avenue where a large, freshly-painted, green shamrock awaited those marching in the parade. The shamrock was recently painted by the Mayor and members of the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, including Pawtucket State Representative Mary Duffy Messier, Arthur Brunell, and Tom Duffy, along with the Pawtucket Department of Public Works.

The Grand Marshall for this year’s event was Thomas Rogers, a member of the Parade Committee. Numerous local high school marching bands and organizations also marched in the parade. The annual event was preceded by the Guinness Irish 5K road race.

“The festivity and cheer surrounding the Saint Patrick’s Day parade in our community is unlike any other event,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien.

“Thank you to committee members for their time and dedication, and for making this event such a success,” said Committee Chairman Arthur Brunell. “Please join us at the Pawtucket Armory after the parade.”
