It's going to be a busy weekend downtown.
The annual St. Patrick's Day Parade kicks off around 2 on Saturday.
At 10:30, Main Avenue will be closed from 5th to 2nd streets.
Phillips Avenue will be closed from 11 a.m. until the parade ends – around 3.
Drivers entering the downtown area will be detoured around the parade route, from 13th to 5th streets along Main Street and Phillips Avenue, until the parade ends.
Bus routes will change too.
Metro bus routes 1, 2, 3, 6 and 10 load and unload on Dakota Avenue between 10th and 11th streets until the parade is done. Bus routes 4, 5, 7 and 9 will use the normal downtown bus stop location.
