St. Patrick's Day: Saturday
[PARTY] St. Patrick’s Day is this Thursday, March 17 but, as is always the case in Buffalo, celebrations will run all weekend. Here is our list of some of our favorite St. Paddy’s day parties of the year.
SATURDAY, MARCH 19
Valley Community Association’s 23rd Annual “Old Neighborhood” St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Noon-5PM, 93 Leddy St., Buffalo
Commonly referred to as “the Old First Ward Parade,” this one has a reputation for being a little more family friendly than the raucous Sunday parade. Viewing of the parade will be available along: South Park Ave. (between Hamburg and Smith St.), Smith St. (between South Park Ave. and Elk St.), Elk St. (between Smith St. and South Park Ave.), Hamburg St. (between South Park Ave. and O’Connell Ave.), O’Connell Ave. (between Hamburg St. and Louisiana St.)
