The South Side Irish Parade planning committee announced this morning that it "is not planning to stage a parade in its present form in March of 2010." The decision reflects the strain having 300,000+ people attend the parade -- and the public drunkenness, multiple arrests and fights that come with it. Alternative events are in the works.
