ST. PATRICK THE TEACHER, BLESS OUR SCHOOL COMMUNITIES AND THEIR FAMILIES

 

The Irish in Philadelphia celebrated St. Patrick's Day as early as 1771, six years before the Declaration of Independence was signed ! The first documented St. Patrick's Day Celebration Parade in Philadelphia was held in 1771, marking over 235 continuous years of celebrations. This parade is the 2nd oldest Parade in the Country, topped only by the New York City Parade. The current parade, which is hosted by the St. Patrick's Day Observance Association, was incorporated as a non profit organization in 1952.

Each year the St. Patrick's Day Observance Association hosts the parade on the Sunday prior to St. Patrick's Day unless March 17th falls on Sunday. When March 17th falls on a Sunday, the parade is held on March 17th, St. Patrick's Feast Day.
 
Throughout the years this celebration has honored this religious and cultural celebration. Thousands of marchers and spectators in their green bedecked finery, the bands and floats, the flags and music highlight one of the grandest parades in a city that loves parades.
