Providence St. Patrick’s Day Parade held Saturday

News

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Hundreds of people lined Smith Street in Providence Saturday afternoon for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Temperatures were a little chilly, but it wasn’t cold enough to keep people away from the annual tradition.

The parade kicked off at noon at Smith Street and Elmhurst Avenue, with groups marching to the State House.

Each year, the parade draws marching bands from across our area, Irish musicians and dancers, police groups and state and local politicians.

This year’s Grand Marshal was Michael Kelly, a former city councilor for Providence’s Ward 3.

The parade was preceded by a St. Patrick’s Day 5K road race.
