Event Information:

 

The St. Patrick's Parade Day in Scranton is the third largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in the United States. It is held in Scranton, Pennsylvania every year on the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day.

The date of the parade is commonly referred to as "Parade Day". Festivities begin with a mass at 10:00 am at St Peter's Cathedral. The mass is preceded by a 2 mile footrace of the parade route at 11:00, an hour later the parade begins.

Each year, thousands of people line the streets of downtown Scranton on Parade Day to take part in one of the city's greatest traditions. The city has hosted a St. Patrick's Day Parade since early in its history, with the current iteration being held annually since 1961. The Parade is sponsored and organized by the St. Patrick's Day Parade Association of Lackawanna County. Attendance for the 2008 parade, which featured appearances by Bertie Ahern, Hillary Clinton and Andrew Buckley of The Office, was estimated to be as high as 150,000 people.

The parade usually involves about 12,000 participants, including bagpipers, Irish stepdancers, high school bands, local organizations and other Irish groups. The day begins with Mass at St. Peter’s Cathedral at 10am. The parade kicks off at Noon.

If you like to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, or simply like to celebrate, then why not do it early? Since 1962 the St. Patrick's Parade Association of Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania conducts the nationally acclaimed parade the weekend before the blessed feast day.
