The Ancient Order of Hibernians say that they are working with the city to make Irish Day more family-friendly. Residents said that this year's changes to the parade and festival, including clearing streets earlier, will have little impact on the crowds and noise.

Corning said he believes business owners and the AOH will have more time to build on this year’s changes when they plan next year’s event. “The parade has been going on for 23 years now, and this is a good time to re-evaluate it,” he said. “With some minor tweaking, it will go a long way to address safety issues and create less friction with the neighbors.”

*An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the event would cost the city approximately $100,000 this year.
