Newport Council Decides On Saint Patrick's Parade

The Newport Saint Patrick's Day Parade is apparently back on. It initially looked like fears of spreading coronavirus had put the parade on ice, but Newport's City Council voted 4-to-3 last night not to revoke the permit for the event, resulting in the parade going on as scheduled, according to reports. Other New England cities this week, including Boston, have canceled their Saint Patrick's parades, while in Rhode Island, a parade was held in Pawtucket this past weekend. Regarding Newport's,  the Rhode Island Department of Health had recommended to the organizers of the parade that the event be canceled or postponed.
