The Ancient Order of Hibernians announced on Friday that the annual Omaha Saint Patrick's Parade will go on as planned for Saturday morning. 

This comes after organizers conferred with the Chief-of-Staff of the Mayor's Office and with the downgrade of snowfall amounts.

"Everything is a go, we got from the mayor's office they said hey it looks good," said Michael McCarville with the Ancient Order of Hibernians. 

The parade is set to start at 10:00am in Downtown Omaha.

Hibernians officials are asking everyone to dress extra warm and join them immediately afterwards at the Post-Parade party at the Mattress Factory.

The time for the Post-Parade Party is 11:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. Irish dancers, Irish music, and corn beef sandwiches. All proceeds go to local charities for the area food pantry's, shelters for battered women, and the Madonna School.

"This year is going to be bigger, with the snow is probably going to drive people in a little bit more," said Philip Bauersachs with The Old Mattress Factory.
