St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner - as is one of the most traditional and well-attended parades in the area.
The 64th Annual Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade is scheduled for Saturday, March 23 on McLean Avenue.
This year’s parade marks the sixth since the merging of the Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade with the McLean Avenue Merchant’s Association St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Last year’s parade had between 25,000 to 30,000 attendees, according to an estimate from the board.
The Parade Committee has named Caitriona Clarke, Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the Aisling Irish Community Center and McLean Avenue business owner, as the Grand Marshal of this year’s parade.
Aides to the Grand Marshal include:
- Bridgette (Murray) Arpa
- Edward Corbett
- Arthur Doran III
- Michael K. Flynn
- Sean Fogarty
- Catherine (O’Connell) Hopkins
- Margaret Kelly
- Robert Stauf
A Mass will take place prior to the parade at St. Barnabas High School Chapel on McLean Avenue at 11:15 a.m. The marchers are scheduled to step off on the “Emerald Mile” west of Bronx River Road at exactly 1 p.m.
