A large crowd turns out for the 31st annual St. Patrick's Day parade, which stepped off from McCoy Stadium at noon, and made its way through the streets of Pawtucket to the reviewing stand in front of City Hall on Roosevelt Avenue Saturday. A colorful crowd of all ages lined the streets to see marching bands, floats, police color guards, local dignitaries and many others take part in the popular Pawtucket tradition honoring the feast of St. Patrick's Day and hosted by Mayor Donald Grebien. A road race was held earlier in the day and an after-party was held for all those participating and the public at the Pawtucket Armory.
