BELLINGHAM - Expect downtown Bellingham to be busier than usual Saturday, March 15, with St. Patrick's events and the monthly winter farmers market.

The Runnin' O' the Green 5K walk/run and 5-mile run starts at 10 a.m. at Boundary Bay Brewery, 1107 Railroad Ave.

The fifth annual St. Patrick's Day Parade begins at noon in the parking lot at Cornwall Avenue and Ohio Street, then goes south on Cornwall, turns left at Chestnut Street and right onto Railroad Avenue past Depot Market Square, then right at East Maple Street and ending at the parking lot at East Maple and Cornwall.

Anyone except bands or floats can join just by showing up between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. in the staging area near the start.

Roads along the route will be blocked long enough to let the parade safely go through, but no long-term road closures are scheduled, according to Bellingham officials.

The monthly edition of the market runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Depot Market Square.
