36th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade Postponed due to Weather
Due to concerns regarding the forecasted weather this week and the frigid temperatures predicted on parade day, the Ancient Order of Hibernians has decided to postpone the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade from March 12 to March 19. The St. Patrick’s Day parade is a proud family tradition that should be shared by all. After a review of the weather forecast, we felt that in the best interest of public safety, and rather than risk of putting young children in harm’s way, postponing the parade one week is our most prudent option.
The re-scheduled parade will still be held at noon on March 19th and the Ancient Order of Hibernians are confident that the people of Saint Joseph will continue their outstanding support of the parade and turn out in strong numbers.
Additionally, the Hibernians would like to remind everyone of the ongoing food drive in coordination with the Second Harvest Food Bank. We encourage those willing to help to visit the parade page for a list of drop off locations or information on cash donations.
Finally, there are plenty of Irish events still scheduled for Saturday March 12 and would urge those who are able and willing to show their support for local businesses and attend.
