On Sunday, the city of New Haven will pause for its annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, and thanks to a Hamden business you don't have to venture in to the city for the parade by car.
Dunn’s Pub, located at 2345 Whitney Ave. in Hamden, is running a shuttle bus to the New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The shuttle costs $10 per person and includes breakfast. Children under 10 are free.
The shuttle will run from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., starting at the parking lot behind Dunn’s Pub and arriving at the corner of Orange & Grove streets in New Haven.
It's a great alternative to parking downtown on a family friendly transport. The will be a bus monitor and no alcohol will be allowed on the bus.
