STAMFORD — The city's 17th annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, which will step off at noon Saturday, will feature 80 marching units, including the Governor's Horse Guard, the County Tyrone Pipe Band and numerous local school bands.

Timothy J. Curtin, whose many positions with the city included a stint as director of operations under former mayor Dannel P. Malloy, will be honored as the parade's grand marshal.

The march is to start on North Street between Summer and Bedford streets, head down Bedford and wrap up just past the steps of Old Town Hall, where a reviewing stand will be set up.

Curtin will also be honored at the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee's annual Grand Marshal's Dinner at 7 p.m. Friday at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 453 Shippan Ave., Stamford. Tickets are $125 a plate, which includes cocktail hour, entertainment and dinner with wine and beer.
