Hibernia St. Pat’s route has revisions this year

The Hibernia Marching Society St. Patrick’s parade, which takes place on Saturday, March 12, has a slightly different route this year, limiting its time on U.S. 90.

The procession still begins at the Biloxi Yacht Club, but travels west toward downtown on Howard Avenue instead of U.S. 90. From Howard the parade turns south on Main, west on U.S. 90, north on Lameuse, west on MLK before turning west on Howard, north on Caillavet and ending on Esters Boulevard, near Reynoir.

More on the parade as March 12 nears.
