BUFFALO, NY - Some people may be wondering if all those piles of snow and the intense cold so far this winter will have an effect on the much-anticipated St. Patrick's Day Parade in Buffalo.
On Sunday, the United Irish American Association, which runs the parade, set those fears to rest. Despite the weather concerns, it appears everything is still flashing a green light (naturally) for the parade from Niagara Square to North Street on the afternoon of Sunday, March 15.
John Morrison of the Association said at one of their periodic planning meetings held Sunday, "As you remember, last year we had a storm just prior to the parade and the city was wonderful. Buffalonians are tough, they come out for the parade, and the city did a wonderful job of cleaning it up. So we anticipate moving forward this year just like every other year,."
