More than 40 groups to march in St. Patrick's Day parade

New London — More than 40 youth groups, civic organizations, local bands and Irish civic groups will participate in this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade in downtown New London, parade organizers announced.

The parade will kick off Sunday, March 16 at 1 p.m. from the corner of Bank and Tilley streets and will make its way north on Bank Street, turn left on State Street and then turn onto Washington Street before ending at the New London Lodge of Elks.

The 3/4 mile parade route “will provide greater viewing for the public,” organizers said. A review stand will be in place at Parade Plaza.

The parade committee also announced that it has raised all funds necessary for the parade and, on Friday, paid the parade permit fee to the city.
