Yeah, there’s a new pope in Rome. However, the same old, familiar, and much-loved local apparition of St. Patrick will be appearing in Northfield. Francis is an Uptown guy; Patrick is a Downtown guy. It’s the 12th annual wearing, and flaunting, of the green. The parade starts in the North Water Street Parking Lot on the westside of downtown and meanders, with intention, around the Riverwalk. Saturday at 2:00 p.m., all are welcome.
