During last night’s meeting of Conshohocken’s Borough Council, Borough Council voted to “Affirm the March 11, 2017 St. Patrick’s Day Parade as an event of public significance where the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages has been specifically approved by the Borough.”
What does that mean? Last year Borough Council amended its open container ordinance so Borough Council can designate certain events as having “public significance” and permit open containers of alcohol. That means you can legally drink a beer on the sidewalk during the parade (people always have, but it was tolerated vs. actually legal). So break out the green Solo cups.
We will have an update in late February on the parade schedule and what is happening at the bars, restaurants and other businesses on parade day.
