People will be seeing green on Sunday, March 1, 2015 in Sunnyside, Queens.

It's the 15th annual St. Pats for All Parade. In the past few years, it has become known for the participants and banners it has included.

But this year, the 7 train will not be running between Times Square and 74th St-Broadway in Jackson Heights. It's another weekend of scheduled shutdowns to improve and upgrade the line.

Organizers and NYC Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer asked the MTA to move the scheduled work.

The MTA says the work has to happen and it has been scheduled since November. Free shuttle buses will be running from Queensboro Plaza to serve the regular 7 line riders and those attending the parade in Sunnyside.
