Street re-naming kicks off St.Patrick's festivities in South Bend


Saint Patrick's Day festivities have officially kicked off in South Bend.  On Wednesday morning, city leaders gathered to rename Nile Avenue as Saint Patrick's Boulevard.  Deputy Mayor Mark Neal was on hand for the event.  Neal said renaming the street is an annual tradition and he is pleased to be part of it.

He was also excited because the weather should be better after the heavy snow Wednesday morning.  Several events are taking place this week, such as the annual Saint Patrick's Day parade and the Little Leprechaun contest.

The parade takes place on Saturday at 11:00am.  Fiddlers Hearth in South Bend will also be featuring live Irish music throughout the weekend.
