St. Patrick's Day Parade returns to Ste-Catherine St.

The never ending sea of construction cones may stop traffic, but nothing can stop the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade.

The United Irish Societies of Montreal announced the 196th edition of the parade will return to Ste-Catherine Street after construction forced the parade to be held on de Maisonneuve Blvd in 2018.

While ongoing work on Ste-Catherine St. won't stop the parade, it will cut it short.

This year's parade will begin at Fort St., continue along Ste-Catherine and come to an end at Metcalfe.

The 2019 St. Patrick's Day Parade will take place Sunday, March 17, at noon.
