With its low self-esteem and high urban blight, Hartford is the ultimate underdog city. Sad City Hartford documents the joys, sorrows and eccentricities of New England's Rising Star.

St. Patty's Day Parade

Saturday, March 10th is the annual St. Patty's Day Parade in downtown. The parade kicks off at Capitol Ave, heads down Main, Asylum, and Ford before wrapping up at the Memorial Arch. Check out the detailed parade route here. It's the one day a year where all of a sudden everyone is Irish. As an Irishwoman once told us "You guys are a country that has 25 million that claim to come from a country of 4 million!" Well we can rest assured no one will be counting much of anything on Saturday. Come on into downtown wearing your green to view the great parade and then have some corned beef and cabbage, the most authentic of all Irish dishes!
