The decision to postpone the 17th Annual Mystic Irish Parade was not taken lightly, but we collectively feel it is in the community’s best interest at this time. The parade is an amazing, local event and the board has worked hard to secure a postponement date for the local businesses and sponsors who support it and the families who enjoy it every year… We’ll all have our day in green soon enough!
