I remember when the parade went all around Southie. Up G st. round the park Down 6th st. where I could be on the 3rd flood . Yes those were the day,.
And started at Andrew Sq!!
Why such a short route?
I believe due to BPD shortage they are trying to keep the parade to one contained route.
Because the commies hate Catholics.
They NEED to extend it again!!! It’s OUTSIDE!
I understand that, But they Already shortened it Once! NOW it’s even shorter!
Maybe it disturbs the yuppies.
be grateful that they are even allowing the parade at all!
Is Greg a relative of Kevin and Joe?
Yes, it’s Kevin son
Southie has left the building
I remember the Parade when it was really THE PARADE! Back in the day: 1950’s-80’s. We were really lucky
on St Pat’s Day. We lived at 88 P Street. It was just where the Parade made the turn off 4th St onto P and then onto E Bdway. We had front row seats both outside and inside the from all 3 Floors. Weather was never an issue for us. We always had Open House for both Neighbors and our extended relatives. It was always a full house with plenty of HOLY WATER (wink). Everyone believed that since the Holy Water was blessed no one could get drunk. By the time the parade was over no one could stand or bless themselves. Also lots of Corn Beef and cabbage. I miss those days very much especially the people. Happy St Pat’s Day!
Is the parade going on the “ city side or the water side of Thomas Park ?
The republicans should run the parade,it will.be done correctly
The map and the description don’t match. When the parade reaches G st is it going right or left around the hill?
Here’s the update map! https://caughtinsouthie.com/ultimate-guide-to-st-patricks-day-in-south-boston/2023-parade-route/
It matches now!
Doesn’t the parade takes a right off “K” street onto east fifth street up to “G” street not east sixth street
They changed it back to sixth – which I guess was the original route until the 80’s when it was changed to east fifth to go by the Gate of Heaven Rectory.
Ok I’m confused about discrepancy if the parade route! Is it going from K street up 6th to G street or East 5th street?? Confusing data out there!
Agree- the parade organizers have changed it a few times. Looks like as of last posting – they are going up 5th.
