Since 1962 St. Patrick’s Day Parade has been held in Scranton, PA, that’s 51 years!
This Parade in Scranton has become nationally known and is the SECOND LARGEST parade in the Country, based on participants per population. THAT’S BIG! The Parade of Parades in Northeast Pennsylvania!
It is highly regarded in the Community, everyone participates in one way or another it seems. For lots of St. Pattys Fun, come to Scranton PA for their Annual Parade, this year to be held on March 9th. They have been known to have 150,000 spectators and more than 12,000 participants. WOW. That’s one fantastic parade.
The Parade begins at 11:45am at the corner of Mulberry Street and Wyoming Avenue. Then continues down Wyoming avenue to Lackawanna Avenue, up Spruce St and then down N. Washington Avenue. Covering this amount of area will give all parade goers ample room to find a spot for a great view of the Parade.
Be sure to check out all the shops and venues along the way to take advantage of all their “Parade Day Bargains” too.
