Saturday’s parade is set to start at 1:30 p.m. at the intersection of Court and Fayette streets, and proceed west to the intersection of Main and Arthur streets.
This year’s marchers include five pipe bands, two kazoo bands, Irish dance groups, local law enforcement and fire departments, and elected officials.
A Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse vehicle will make its way down the parade route beginning at 1:15 to collect non-perishable food items and cash donations.
David said parade attendees should allot extra time to find parking downtown with the Collier Street ramp now closed. Parking will be available in the lot under Governmental Plaza on Hawley Street, and in the State Street and Water Street ramps, he said.
