What To Know About Friday’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The Greater Bridgeport St. Patrick’s Day Parade will kick off noon on Friday in Black Rock starting at Burroughs Community Center, 2470 Fairfield Avenue, corner of Ellsworth Street, traveling west on Fairfield Avenue to The Castle, 3171 Fairfield Avenue, corner of Courtland Avenue.



  1. With the Black Rock Castle return to Bridgeport from its time in Fairfield, the route referenced did not note that it passes a Ganim property or perhaps more, Matty’s Corner, proprietor and proud publican, Daniel Roach, City employee and DTC politician.
    No understanding of the brevity from Joel Gonzalez. Perhaps that negativity says it all, for him?
    It takes a strong grip and much forced air with diaphragm support for the skirling of the pipes to be heard. Or is the green so worn and forlorn on City streets that the parade moved away from downtown, as has so much economic development that serves people retail and with modern services? Time continues to tell.
