    Or, more accurately, start on Sunday, when Norwich offers its St. Patrick’s Parade and Festival.

    The procession kicks off at 1 p.m. from Main Street and travels around the downtown. This year’s grand marshal is Deanna Rhodes, who has been the City of Norwich’s director of planning and neighborhood services for the past six years and who serves on the executive boards of both the Connecticut Association of Flood Managers and Friends of the State Archaeologist.

    The festival centered around the parade offers crafts and face painting for kids starting at noon, and food trucks around the downtown area.

    Several locations will be hosting music after the parade; check gonorwichct.com/st-pats-parade for details.
