PAWTUCKET â The grand marshal and Irish âfacesâ have been chosen, the raffle has been held and the shamrock will be painted in the street in front of City Hall this morning. In short, the city is gearing up for its annual St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday.
The parade will step off on Saturday, March 2, at noon (rain or shine) from McCoy Stadium on Division Street. The parade then proceeds down South Bend Street to Walcott Street, then into the downtown and onto Roosevelt Avenue, where it passes by a reviewing stand in front of City Hall.
After the four, four-team regions that comprise the R.I. boysâ basketball open tournament were revealed, clever minds declared Region IV âThe Blackstone Valley Invitational.â
The folks at The Prout School may feel slighted with such a bold declaration, but look at the rest of the regionâs participants. Here you have two of the three division champions in Cumberland and North Smithfield along with Shea.
In other words, the moniker fits.
