BOSTON (WBZ-AM) – Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, set for Sunday, is in danger of cancellation, due to the aftereffects of Tuesday’s blizzard. Mayor Marty Walsh shared his concerns about the event at a press conference established to discuss the ongoing effects of Tuesday’s storm.
"As far as Sunday, we're looking ahead a little bit to the St. Patrick's Day Parade," Walsh said. "No decision has been made yet, but it's going to be very difficult, I think, to have the route that goes winding through South Boston because of all the snow that we're gonna have.”
"We're gonna make a determination a little later on, what to do with Sunday, whether we have the parade or cancel the parade," he said. "We'll play it by ear and see as we go through the next few days to see how it goes, but we still have a lot of work to do as far as the removal of snow."
Between 600,000 and 1 million people attend the parade every year.
