PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The City of Philadelphia announced Monday full road closures, parking restrictions and public transportation details for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The parade will be held on Sunday, March 10, beginning at 11:15 a.m., but the closures and restrictions begin much earlier than that.

And that means getting around the city will be tough for travelers.

The parade begins at 16th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, proceeding through Independence Mall and ending at Penn’s Landing.

A grandstand and performance area will be located at 5th and Market Streets.
