WEEKEND PICK: Celebrate the Irish & St. Patrick's Day at a Parade

Monday is St. Patrick's Day.

Celebrate a little earlier by attending one of the three parades on Sunday:

* Abington St. Patrick's Day Parade. 1 p.m.

For more information call 781-878-1570 or visit

* 13th Annual Parade. Gates Middle School, First Parish Rd., Scituate. 1 p.m. Parade proceeds down First Parish Rd. to Front St., Scituate Harbor. Then it turns right onto Jericho Rd., ending at the Town Pier. Scituate is nicknamed the Irish Riviera, since many Irish politicians like James Michael Curley and the Kennedys liked to vacation there in summer.

* 107th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. Begins at Broadway T-stop and ends at Andre Square, South Boston. 1 p.m. Colorful floats, music, and good cheer celebrate the city's Irish heritage in Boston's most Irish neighborhood jutting into Boston Harbor.

For more info, call 617-635-3911.
