Despite initial reports that the Village of Rockville Centre had planned on altering the route of its annual St. Patrick's Day parade, it has been confirmed that the route will not change and the parade will go on as normally planned.
The parade will now begin on Maple Avenue and N. Long Beach Road.
Originally, Village Administrator Keith Spadaro said potholes and other problems on Maple Avenue between North Long Beach Road and Jefferson Avenue would force the parade's starting route to change. However, the village confirmed that Maple Avenue will be temporarily repaired for the parade.
The parade is set to start at noon on March 23.
