Mounds of snow and ice aren’t getting in the way of a annual Southie tradition. With a little route modification, the parade will be one straight shot – right down Broadway. Mayor Marty Walsh issued a statement on March 4th stating the parade organizers will be coordinating a volunteer effort as well as help from the City of Boston to get rid of the snow. Good luck!
“Tonight, I met with the organizers of the South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade and local elected officials for a follow-up discussion on this year’s parade.
I am pleased all parties involved were able to come to agreement that due to the unprecedented amount of snow Boston has received over a 30 day period, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade route will start at Broadway Station and end at Farragut Road to ensure the safety of the participants and spectators. This weekend, organizers of the parade will be coordinating a volunteer effort, with the assistance of the City, to clear the remaining snow on the modified route.”
A special event at L St Tavern is being held to help raise fund for the parade. Get the scoop:

This it's a BAD idea, it should be postponed.
This is an obvious attempt to please the bars on Broadway, who by the way contribute very little to the cost of the parade. If this was not the case, why wouldn't they move the parade down on Day Boulevard?
The DCR does a great job removing the snow from the streets and sidewalks. And they actually repair any potholes on the street. The City DPW should take heed on how it should be done.
Or we could just not have outsiders peeing and puking on our streets this year.
Where are people going to park? Do people really need to drink that badly?
