Press Release 03/16/17

 

Due to residual ice and snow from this last snowstorm, the Parade Committee in conjunction with the City of Boston has decided to shorten the parade route this year. This was done for public safety reasons. It would be impossible to remove all the ice and snow along the traditional route in time for the parade on Sunday. The route will start at Broadway station and then will end at East Broadway and Farragut Road. The City of Boston has indicated that provisions will be made for special viewing areas for seniors and the disabled that might not be able to view the parade on the shortened route. Transportation should also be available. The safety of the spectators and participants is our highest priority. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. Weather permitting, we will go back to the traditional route next year. See you on Sunday!
