It is with great pleasure that we report the return of the Mid-Hudson St. Patrick’s Parade, which will be held in the Village of Greenwood Lake, NY, on September 19, 2021. Kevin Cummings, has been chosen as Grand Marshal and is currently the longest reigning Grand Marshal in the parade’s history, will lead us down the avenue this year.
Our event commences with the St. Patrick’s Mass, to be held at the Shrine to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on Wawayanda Avenue, in Middletown, at 9am. This will be followed immediately by the Grand Marshal’s Breakfast at Kuhl’s Highland House on Highland Avenue, also in Middletown. Upon completion of the morning festivities, we shall step off for the 44th parade in Greenwood Lake.
We are excited to be welcomed this year to Greenwood Lake and as a bonus, Mayor Dwyer plans to implement a reception area at/near the end of the parade. The pandemic has been a burden to us all, and celebrating the Patron Saint of Ireland on 9/19/2021 is a sorely needed remedy.
If you are interested in marching in the Mid Hudson St. Patrick’s Parade, please don’t hesitate to contact Bill Kirnan at [email protected], or [email protected] , for your group accommodations. If you have any questions regarding the parade, attendance, or please contact [email protected]
