St. Patrick's Day

Celebrating St. Patrick's Day During Social Distancing

The cancelation of this year's St. Patrick's Day Parade didn't stop the tri-state from getting in the spirit

While the 2020 St. Patrick's Day Parade may have been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, many in the tri-state still found their own ways to celebrate amid social distancing.

In the early hours of St Patrick's Day, a group of about 10 people -- observing social distancing -- proudly marched with a small escort from the Fighting 69th regiment from 26th Street to St Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan to preserve the 259-year tradition of marching on the streets of New York City, the St. Patrick's Day Foundation chairman said. Following a blessing outside St Patrick's Cathedral, a slightly smaller group then marched on the sidewalk the entire route to 82nd Street.
