UPDATE: Senator Nick Collins announced this event will be canceled in light of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade cancellation.
Annual event returning to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center Sunday March 15th
BOSTON- Next weekend, on Sunday March 15th, State Senator Nick Collins will take the stage as the host of the St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast, a storied Boston tradition. His second year as the host, Senator Collins plans to have a mix of traditional songs, guests, and themes, combined with some fresh material.
In addition to the usual guests, Senator Collins expects to draw Senator Ed Markey and Congressman Joe Kennedy, who are in the midst of a competitive election for the United States Senate.
“I am really excited to once again host this great event,” said Senator Nick Collins. “It is an honor to welcome people to my district, and share some of the traditions that make my home town of Southie such a great place. I’m looking forward to another fun year full of song, dance, and good humor.”
Having taken many forms since it became a Boston tradition in the 1930’s, this year’s breakfast will be held at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Previous venues have included the Flynn Cruiseport, which is under renovation this year, the Ironworkers Local 7 Union Hall, Dorgan’s, and the German Club.
The event begin at 9am, and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade will kick off at 1pm.
