The Shamrocks Are Painted, We’re Ready To Go!

Posted By Jim Walsh on Mar 6, 2022


We (The Manchester Saint Patrick’s Parade Committee) were hard at work Saturday, March 5th, painting the Shamrocks Downtown on Elm St in preparation for the 25th annual Manchester Saint Patrick’s Parade that will take place on March 27th.
Sunday, March 27th promises to be a huge day for our City as the Millennium Running Stonyfield Organic Lil’ Leprechaun Runs (kids 8 and under, 100-yard fun run) will start at 10:15 AM, followed by the Citizens Bank Shamrock Shuffle at 11:00 AM and the 25th Annual Manchester Saint Patrick’s Parade at 12 PM to entertain spectators along Elm St. and to help provide an economic boost to our local small businesses and restaurants.

This year’s parade will feature lots of exciting bands, performers, floats, and special guests as they march down Elm St. from the Brady Sullivan Tower to the review stand down in front of Victory Park on Merrimack St. A huge thank you goes out to the 25th Annual Manchester Saint Patrick’s Parade 2020, 2021, and 2022 Grand Marshall; Stephanie F. McLaughlin, Mayor Joyce Craig for stopping by and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats for helping us paint the shamrocks. We also want to thank the Manchester Police Department and the City of Manchester for helping us put this on in a safe and efficient manner.
