UPDATE: Pittsburgh’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade is also March 12th.  The parade route will close some downtown streets to include Grant and Liberty.  Prior year street closures started at 7:30 AM.  We recommend you leave extra travel time and if possible plan a route that does not come through the parade area.  They will likely publish more details on the parade as the date gets closer.
