Boston has its famous St. Patrick’s Day parade and revelry. This year, Edgartown will have its own, smaller, celebration of all things Irish.

On Monday, the Edgartown selectmen approved the Kelley House Inn’s proposal for the first annual St. Patrick’s Day parade on Saturday, March 17. The parade route is small enough for a leprechaun: from Dock street to the Newes from America Pub on Kelley street. Parade organizers estimate the event will take five or 10 minutes.

“We can handle that,” Edgartown police chief Antone Bettencourt said at the selectmen’s meeting.

The parade will assemble at 11:30 a.m. Elizabeth Rothwell, director of marketing and events at the Harbor View Hotel, which owns the Kelley House, said anyone can participate in the parade, and participants are encouraged to wear green. The first 25 people to arrive will receive a commemorative T-shirt, and refreshments will be available post-parade at the Newes Pub and the Kelley House.

The parade is one of the inn’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend activities, which are sponsored by Harpoon Celtic Ale. Musician Sean Brennan will perform Irish music Friday, March 16 from 8 to 11 p.m. at the Newes Pub. The pub will also feature a menu full of Irish fare on Saturday, with Irish stew, corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie and a selection of Irish desserts on the menu, and an Irish brunch on Sunday.

A package deal for an overnight stay at the Kelley House and Sunday brunch is $135 per person.

The Chappy Room on Kelley street will feature a performance from Stanley and Grimm Irish Music, face painting and an open mic limerick contest.

On Saturday night, Good Night Louise will perform from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.

“I think you’re doing a really nice job of having events and things down there,” town administrator Pam Dolby told the Harbor View representatives after the vote.

In other business, Edgartown lost another year-round business, as the selectmen approved Detente restaurant’s request to change from a year-round to seasonal, all-alcohol restaurant license. Owners Kevin and Suzanna Crowell appeared at the meeting with their month-old son, Tiernan (they also have a two-year-old daughter, Sienna).

“We gave year-round our best shot, but seasonal is a better fit for us,” Mrs. Crowell said. She later told the Gazette that they made the decision for “oh, so many reasons,” both personal and financial.

“Just for our business, the winters weren’t working anymore,” she said.

The Nevin Square restaurant is already closed for the season, she said, and will be open and serving modern local cuisine from May 3 through the end of October.
