2023 Dutchess County
St. Patrick's Parade
Grand Marshal is...
William Holohan Beale
William Holohan Beale is an outstanding individual who has always played an integral part in our treasured tradition. He has been the parade's Master of Ceremonies for the past 25 years. He skillfully announced all the participants from his perch atop the Grandstand.
This year he will have a different perspective. He will march front and center leading the marchers up main street. Come see the parade on Saturday March 4th, 2023.
Bill is currently the Director of Emergency Management for Dutchess County. He is also the Co-Host, Writer and Producer of the Woodman in the Morning Show on K104.7 FM.
William has served our community as Deputy Supervisor and Councilman for the town of Wappinger. He is the past President and Chief of the Hughsonville Fire Department and has 30+ years as an active Firefighter.
A graduate of Marist College with a Bachelor of Science and a Master's Degree in Public Administration.
He is married to his beautiful wife Erin and is the proud father of four-year-old Liam and one year old Sean. We are certain that the Holohan and Beale families who have been huge supporters of this event could not be prouder.
Please come and welcome Bill as the 2023 Grand Marshal at the Emerald Ball on February 18th, 2023 at the Elk's Club on Overocker Road.
