It’s OVER and it was GREAT!

Posted By Jim Walsh on Mar 28, 2022


The 25th Manchester Saint Patrick’s Parade is in the books. After a 2-year hiatus due to Covid we finally brought this wonderful Parade down Elm Street. By all accounts it was worth the wait.

Five Pipe Bands, seven marching bands including all 3 city high school bands, the Muchachos, 5 Irish dance groups, unicyclists, clowns, fire trucks, Mini Monster trucks, go carts and much more.

None of this happens without the businesses that sponsor the Parade and all of the individual sponsors that contribute. A list of corporate sponsors appears on this website. A special thanks to Chalifour’s Flowers for donating all of the flowers for the Parade and the Passing of the Sash Mass. Also, CafĂ© La Reine for providing us with coffee, tea, and hot chocolate for the review stand!

Also, thanks to the Anagnost Companies and Brady Sullivan for allowing us to use their properties to stage the Parade. This Parade does not happen without the Manchester Department of Public Works, the Manchester Police and Fire Departments, and Parks and Recreation. A HUGE shoutout to all of them for helping to set up and protect us all.

Thanks also to the limousine drivers and principals from Connor-Healy, Durning-Bykwoski-Young, and Lambert Funeral Homes for their generous donation of vehicles for our VIP’s.

Stay tuned to this website for more information and pictures! Lots of great pictures and a really nice write-up on Manchester Ink Link: https://manchesterinklink.com/25th-annual-st-patricks-parade-one-for-the-record-books/
