GREENWICH — The Greenwich St. Patrick’s Day Parade is set for Sunday afternoon with weather forecasts calling for sun and temperatures getting into the mid-50’s.

The parade will begin at 2 p.m. from Town Hall’s southern parking lot and go from there onto West Putnam Avenue before it will turn onto Greenwich Avenue and head all the way down until it reached Steamboat Road.

Because of the parade there will be parking restrictions. While there will be some parts of Greenwich Avenue that people can park at, there will also be some areas where parking is forbidden.

The parking restrictions are in place for the west side of Greenwich Avenue from Bruce Place, which is at the Greenwich Commons Park, to Steamboat Road.

On the east side of Greenwich Avenue, there will be no parking from the intersection of West Putnam Avenue to Steamboat Road.

Dayton Avenue will be closed for traffic at noon from the Field Point Road intersection to the entrance of the supermarkets to allow for parade trucks, floats and other parade elements to proceed. Additionally, road closures will occur throughout the downtown area at approximately 1:30 p.m. to prepare for the parade.

Detour signs will be posted and police officers will be on the scene to direct traffic.

West Putnam Avenue will be closed for the parade from Dearfield Drive to Lafayette Place from 1:45 to approximately 3 p.m. Roads will be reopened as the parade passes through and police determine it is safe.
