The next Parade Day in Scranton is on Saturday March 12, 2016. It kicks off at 11:45am.
The "rite of spring" (Scranton's version of Mardi Gras) provides enormous stimulation for the young and young-at-heart.
Parade Day begins with Mass at St. Peterís 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.
Show off your musical group (bag pipes, highschool band or string band) and join with the other floats and marchers to show off your musical and artistic talent as one of the 12,000 (and growing) participants. Click on Entry Form to be part of the next strut.
We are 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 was third.
*For cities with a population over 50,000
