St. Patrick's Day parade in Dogtown

The Ancient Order of Hibernians will hold their 30th annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dogtown today (Monday).  This year's Grand Marshall is native St. Louisan, cartoonist Mike Peters who draws the popular, long-running comic strip Mother Goose and Grimm.   The parade along Tamm Avenue steps off at 12:30 p.m. at the corner of Tamm and Oakland.  Parade organizers suggest parking at the St. Louis Zoo south lot or free curb-side parking in Forest Park.  
 
Also several bus lines are being rerouted because of the parade.  More information is available at the Metro St. Louis website.  
 
More information about the parade can be found on the website of the Ancient Order of Hibernians.

Changes are on the way to the 136th Veiled Prophet parade.

Mayor Francis Slay is holding a press conference Wednesday morning to detail the additions and changes. A press release also indicates that this year's Grand Marshal will be a "True American Hero" and is the veteran of three wars.

   It's one of the biggest parades of the year in St. Louis.   The 125th annual Annie Malone May Day Parade will march through downtown Sunday afternoon.

   In light of recent violence at a New Orleans parade and the Boston Marathon bombing, St. Louis police are adjusting their security plan.  Police Chief Sam Dotson says the plan includes both plain clothed and uniformed officers and communications with FBI and state law enforcement officers.

   "It includes an intelligence component," Dotson said.  "Are there any threats against the parade? And the first answer to that is no, there aren't."

   Dotson says parade goers can play a role in keeping the event safe by leaving their guns at home, and paying attention to their surroundings.   Dotson says police will be very visible along the parade route Sunday and if parade-goers see someone acting strangely, like wearing a long coat or a trench coat that's inappropriate for the weather, they should point that individual out to an officer.

   Parade organizers say they've also contracted private security for the event.
