Why isn’t the parade on St. Patrick’s Day?

Many people wonder why the parade is not held on the actual day that others celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The answer is quite simple. It is very hard to compete with the likes of Boston and New York when it comes to attracting quality bands, marching units and floats on the actual day. Besides…St. Patrick’s Day is a period of time, not a day, so why not streeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetch it out a little!!
