The Pipes Will Swirl And The Drums Will Bang



The annual Queens County St. Patrick’s Day Parade will step off at 1 p.m. tomorrow, March 3, rain or shine. Once again, the parade route will be shortened due to Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s restrictions that took effect last year. After a morning mass at St. Francis de Sales Church, the parade will step off from Beach 129 Street and Newport Avenue. It will go east to Beach 116 Street, where it will turn south to Rockaway Beach Boulevard and then east once more to Beach 102 Street. There will be brief street closings as the parade passes, and police officials warn that open drinking will not be tolerated during or after the parade. Pictured, the Staten Island Pipes and Drums at last year’s parade.
