St. Patrick's Day 2014
NYC Parade Celebration
Monday, March 17, 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM
The Parade route begins on 5th Avenue at 44th Street and ends at 79th Street. The grandstands are located between 62nd and 64th Streets. The crowd is densest at St. Patrick's Cathedral and in the area immediately around there and tends to lessen as you move north along the parade route. This year's Grand Marshall of the Parade is John (Jack) T. Ahern, Business Manager and Financial Secretary of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 30. The first St. Patrick's Day Parade took place over 250 years ago in New York City. For more information, visit the official Parade website.
