OVI patrol planned for St. Patrick’s Day

As it is a large, public event, with thousands of people planning to attent, the city is restricting parking and revelers are asked to consider taking RTA or using ride share services, especially if they plan on imbibing.

Parking restrictions start at 9 a.m. and include down Superior Avenue from East 24th Street to West 3rd Street. The parade route itself is closed down to traffic as well.

The parade kicks off just after 2 p.m. with the theme of “Ireland: One Island, one nation.”
