Utica’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is postponed but there’s still plenty of celebrations happening!

Wanna Play Cafe will be open serving their crowd favorites and hot coffee to keep you warm. They’re offering free play for kids (with a paid adult) all day!

The Celtic Harp is still hosting their ‘PRE Parade Day Hooley.’ Live music will be provided by the band Last Left from 1-5pm. They’ll be serving up special $2 green draft beers.

Woodland Farm Brewery is still open bright and early at 8am to celebrate. Above The Dam, Tom and Mark will be providing local jams. They will also be releasing a new oatmeal stout on nitro.

Utica Brews are postponing their event but are keeping their doors open on Saturday and welcome party goers.

Lt. Bryan Coromato, Utica Police public information officer, says the department will have its usual presence on Varick Street Satuday, as if they parade was still happening. That includes closing Varick Street to traffic for most of the day.

Parade organizers decided to call-off tomorrow’s annual parade down Genesee Street citing concerns over single digit temperatures and wind chills below zero. They are meeting with city officials to see if it can be rescheduled for next Saturday, March 18th.

How will you celebrate on Saturday?
