The St. Patrick’s Parade Committee was formed in the fall of 1995 by several members of the community and the Kevin Barry Irish Club. They gathered together to discuss having a St. Patrick’s Parade for Dutchess County residents. From this inspired group, a committee was formed and the fund raising began. Yes, it does cost money to run a Parade. To help the parade to continue to grow please take an ad in our journal.
