WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — Business was booming for bars and restaurants after the St. Patrick's Parade in Wilkes-Barre.
The party was still going on long after the parade ended; Vesuvio's Pizzeria and Sports Bar were especially busy.
The manager says the parade is a big boost to local businesses, which is needed after COVID-19.
"It's a big boost for business. You know, it's nice to have people coming downtown Wilkes-barre, seeing everything going on around here. We needed it. After COVID was tough, so we needed a little bump, a little boost," said Donald Sabatino.
The milder weather also helped bring people out.
