St. Patrick’s Day is Closing In

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee is proud to release the 2018 logo in honor of the parade’s Grand Marshal, the Honorable Colleen M. Hastings, associate judge for the Rhode Island District Court, Second Division. The yearly button’s design incorporates the vocation or interests of the Grand Marshal. This year, it shows a classically inspired lady justice, clothed in a flowing white robe, holding both the symbolic instruments of her office, the balance and the sword. The word “Justice” surrounds her in both English and Gallic. The colors of the national flag of Ireland are interwoven into the design. The parade will be on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, which falls on a Saturday next year. For more information, visit newportirish.com.
