Gaithersburg cancels St. Patrick's parade
Concern about the heavy rains and high winds predicted for this weekend has forced officials in Gaithersburg to cancel the city's St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which was to be tomorrow.
According to a news release issued by the city, the decision was made by the three partnering organizations: the Harp & Shamrock Society of Gaithersburg, the Peterson Companies/Washingtonian Center and the City of Gaithersburg.
However, revelers will still be able to celebrate. The Martin Family Band, originally scheduled to perform on the plaza after the parade, will play Wednesday -- actual St. Patrick's Day -- from 6 to 8 p.m. Individuals who were scheduled to participate in the parade are invited to set up a table or give out information, or to perform onstage before the band. For more information, contact the Peterson Companies marketing office at 703-653-8834.
