    The event kicked off with necn's "Live on the Green Carpet" event at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center at 9 a.m. Politicians from across Massachusetts spoke at the breakfast beginning at 10 a.m.

    The parade began immediately following the breakfast at 12:30 p.m. The route, which was altered due to the extreme amounts of snow that accumulated in Boston this winter, began at the MBTA's Broadway Station and continued down West Broadway and East Broadway, before concluding at Farragut Road.
