March 12 UPDATE: Parade now cancelled
The Greater Bridgeport St. Patrick’s Day Parade has endured rain, sleet, snow, wind and now Coronavirus fallout.
Parade organizers announced on Tuesday the March 17 parade, that runs through Downtown, is on, albeit without the traditional indoor activities that complement parade day.
While several Connecticut communities have canceled their respective parades, Bridgeport’s organizers received guidance from Tim Callahan, former health director for Bridgeport and Norwalk.
This year’s grand marshal is Mary Ann Doonan.
