The Annual St. Patty’s Day Parade to be held on Saturday, March 17th, 2018

The parade is the most popular and largest NYC parade around.
It begins at 11:00 am, and goes along Fifth Avenue from 44th to 79th Street or there abouts. Please note that the parade used to go up to 86th Street but has progressively stopped short of that turn as time passed. So if you’re up in that area then take note to keep aware of where that turn may actually be.

This year the grand marshall will be Loretta Brennan Glucksman

History

This holiday marks the anniversary of Saint Patrick who died on March 17th the year of which is unclear. One source cite it as being 460 AD whereas another has it at 492 AD. Regardless of what year he passed, he is the patron saint of Ireland who founded churches and schools there and converted numerous to Christianity. Here in America the day’s been celebrated since 1737 with the very first parade (worldwide?) having taken place on 1762 in New York City.

In the year of 2004 it snowed during the parade and yours truly was of course there. Here’s a big shout out to all those wonderful marchers and other participants who braved the cold temperatures!!!! ‘and in 2006 I stood there for hours enjoying every single minute on a sunny yet extremely cold day. ‘of course there was last year when the temperatures were extremely Spring-like for the bulk of the day. Mind you, for the last few years in a row the weather was beyond beautiful. I mean it was GORGEOUS! So let’s see what this year has in store for us all.

The NYPD is reminding people that public drinking of alcohol is strictly forbidden during the parade. Anyone found drinking can be ticketed and arrested, and police will confiscate all alcoholic beverages.

There will be a live telecast of the Parade on March 17th at 11:00 am on local Television Station, Ch. 4, NBC
