This parade that started in 1762 has survived; a war of revolution, World War I, World War II, the great depression, and the pandemics of 1918 and 2022, and this year we will we see the return of participants and bands from all over the country, on a scale that we have not seen since 2019 because of the pandemic.  We are indeed looking forward to a fantastic day on March 17, celebrating Irish heritage and culture in New York City,” said Hilary Beirne, Founding Chairman of the New York City St. Patrick's Day Foundation.
