Click through to check out a ton of info on the parade

Are you ready?  Thanksgiving is just about a week away!  Yup, it’s time to load up on turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gobble your way to a food coma.

But, Thanksgiving isn’t just about the food and Black Friday.  Actually, it’s about celebrating with family and having lots of fun.  There will be lots of that going on this coming weekend in Stamford during the UBS Parade Spectacular.  This huge parade is a sight to see and is definitely a tradition for Nutmeggers and nearby New Yorkers.  While you can see the balloons being inflated on Saturday from 3-6 pm at the corner of Hoyt Street and Summer, the high flying action goes down on Sunday, 11/18.  The parade will begin at noon, starting off on Summer Street, then will wind its way down to Broad then Atlantic.  You’ll want to find a parking spot pretty early, so don’t wait until the last minute.  Ya heard?

Where to Eat, Drink, and Watch Stamford’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, 3/10/12

9 Mar

The luck of the Irish might save ya this March when we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with an entire month of celebrations, but ya best be knowing where to go to watch and enjoy the parade in Stamford tomorrow, 3/10.  Is this an Irish accent or a pirate accent?  Not sure, but we know it’s gonna be fun, green beer excluded.  The fun begins at noon on North Street.  The parade will then follow down Bedford and end by Old Town Hall by a special Reviewing Stand.

Our interactive map shows the basic parade route and also shows some prime restaurant spots on the route where you might sit outside.  High of 43 tomorrow?  You can take it!  Especially because Bar Rosso is getting in on the action and will be providing complimentary coffee starting at 10.  That will definitely help.

One of the best viewing spots will be at Station Eats, across from Palace Theater.  Just walk up the steps and set out on their deck and sip on some Irish milkshakes.  ;)

Also, from Avon Theatere Film Center on Facebook:  Going to Stamford’s St. Patrick’s Day on Bedford Street tomorrow? We’ll have our concession stand open with an array of candy, soda, water, coffee/tea/hot chocolate, and, of course, popcorn to keep your tummy happy for all the festivities!

Do you have any restaurants that you’d like us to add to this map?  Let us know and we’ll add them in!
