UTICA- The festivities didn’t stop after the 2018 St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Family, friends, and others joined together and hit the bar scene on Varick Street.

“I think that it is a time to come together and just see everyone’s style and have a good time,” said Paul Straney, who was enjoying post-parade festivities. “Every year we come here and just see everyone having a good time.

This year Varick Street was lined with Utica Police officers, SWAT officers, and being observed by officers in a watchtower.

“So far so good,” said Lt. Sean Dougherty of the Utica Police Department. “We will see what happens afterward but so far everyone has been good.”

Lines to get into bars were found to be longer than usual. For the Celtic Harp, those waiting to get in said the wait was worth it.

“I’ve been waiting in line for about 15 minutes,” said Colby Crowssett, of New York Mills. “It’s worth the wait; it’s the biggest spot on Varick.”
