Thousands expected to attend annual St. Patrick’s Day parade

Tens of hundreds of individuals are expected to line the streets of South Boston for the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade.

The parade is a central part of the town’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Among those planning to march in the parade is Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito and Boston Mayor Martin Walsh.

Forward of the parade, the state’s political leaders have been gathering for the St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast in South Boston.

Baker is likely one of the occasion’s headliners. U.S. Sen. Ed Markey, U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley and Walsh are among the prime Democrats who also planned to attend the breakfast.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who’s operating for the Democratic nomination for president, is campaigning in Tennessee on Sunday and wasn’t scheduled to attend the occasion.
