Letter: Wrong day for a parade
A beautiful sunny Sunday morning. Watching Channel 9 News, I hear that Manchester’s (and I guess the “official” New Hampshire) St. Patrick’s Day celebration is to be held next week. The event coordinator said she felt we would “lose out” trying to compete with Boston’s parade and festivities.
Come on, man! Next Sunday is March 24. I can’t think of any reason to drive from Grafton to Manchester next weekend but on St. Patrick’s Day, I would. Who placed this woman in the position to make this decision? Next week! I don’t know anyone up here who would consider driving all the way to Boston for a parade when we could have one on the proper day in Manchester or Portsmouth or even Warner. Maybe next year.
