Scranton St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The next Parade Day in Scranton is on Saturday March 14, 2015. Parade Day begins with Mass at St. Peter’s Cathedral at 10am. The parade kicks off at Noon.

The Saint Patrick’s parade in Scranton boasts 12,000 participants, including multiple bagpipe, high school and string bands. The parade is enhanced by many floats and large balloons. Many Irish groups and societies are also represented. It has been going on annually since 1962 and is organized by the St. Patrick’s Parade Association of Lackawanna County. The parade has received national attention as being one of the better St. Patrick’s parades. The parade route begins on Wyoming Ave in front of St. Peter’s Cathedral, proceeds to Lackawanna Ave. over Jefferson Ave. then down Spruce St to get to Washington Ave. where it passes the William J. Nealon Federal building and finally the reviewing stand.

This is the second largest parade in the country, as measured by participants per population of the city in which it’s held. Savannah, GA is first, New York City is third.
