Veterans Council met to discuss St. Patrick’s Day Parade route changes

BOSTON (WHDH) - The South Boston Allied War Veterans Council met on Thursday night to discuss the changes to this year’s South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade route.

The parade route has been cut short due to the latest nor’easter. Mayor Marty Walsh said he is concerned about everyone’s safety. 

Mayor Walsh decided to keep the parade off of side streets which has upset people who plan to attend, or are scheduled to be in the parade.

The parade, scheduled for Sunday, will now be a shorter event.

The South Boston Allied War Veterans Council met to explore options in light of Mayor Walsh’s decision.

The parade’s new snow route will include West and East Broadway, but will not include 4th and 6th Streets.
