Amid increased concerns of the spread of COVID-19, more planned parades celebrating St. Patrick’s Day have been postponed in the Hudson Valley.

With the spread of coronavirus impacting everything from the NBA season to the NCAA Tournament, several municipalities in Westchester have announced their plans to push back their scheduled parades until the fall.

In Eastchester, the St. Patrick’s Day parade planned for this weekend has been postponed until Sunday, Sept. 20.

The popular Sound Shore St. Patrick’s Day parade was also postponed, the parade committee announced, though no official date has been set in the fall.


“After much thought and consideration, The Sound Shore St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee has decided to postpone the annual parade, which was scheduled to be held on Sunday, March 22,” Michael Murphy said. “The Committee has discussed the ever-changing situation that is currently taking place and have prioritized the well-being of the valued members of the Sound Shore Community.

“We look forward to marching down Mamaroneck Avenue to celebrate our 2020 Grand Marshall, Kate Bialo, in the near future.”

“We are in an unprecedented and challenging situation, not just in Westchester, but world-wide,” Bialo said. “I applaud our parade committee’s wise decision to postpone our event in the interest of public health. 

"We look forward to celebrating better times with our Sound Shore neighbors with a rescheduled parade that will be the best ever.”
