There is a rich Irish culture here in the Greater Buffalo NY. St. Patrick’s Day is an important celebration in Western New York but it is not the only time that Buffalonians celebrate that Irish heritage. On St. Patrick’s Day everyone is Irish. Much like everyone is Polish on Dyngus Day and Italian on St. Joseph’s Day.
Buffalo St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Buffalo
Buffalo’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is traditionally held on the Sunday closest to St. Patrick’s Day, March 17. In 2013 it will be held on March 17th. Each year, thousands of people flock downtown to enjoy the annual tradition. As two o’clock draws near, one notices the Irish tricolor flags lining the Parade route, the children and adults sitting in lawn chairs along the curb, and the excitement and anticipation in the air.
Promptly at two o’clock, the Parade begins. As the Grand Marshal, Deputy Grand Marshals, bagpipers, local dignitaries, and UIAA Executive Committee members begin to lead the Parade, the crowd roars its approval — a Buffalo tradition continues! From the first marchers to the last, it is evident that the Buffalo St. Patrick’s Day Parade is truly a community event. High school marching bands, Irish step dancers, Civil War reenactment groups, fire trucks, Irish-American philanthropic organizations, and many others march proudly along to frequent cheers from the people of all ages lining the Parade route.
