St. Patrick's Day Parade-Downtown Scranton March 15, 2014, 11:45 a.m.
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 conducts the nationally acclaimed parade-the weekend before the blessed feast day. This "rite of spring" (Scranton's version of Mardi Gras) provides enormous stimulation for the young and young-at-heart! One of the largest parades in the country! Post Parade Party at the Scranton Cultural Center will be from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. No admission fee, great live entertainment and a smoke free environment make the Scranton Cultural Center's this best deal in the city. This party also includes performances from many of the parade groups, including step dancers, drum and pipe corps bands and a surprise performance or two! Food and refreshments available for sale. If inclement weather, parade will be held two weeks later on March 22nd.
