The Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) would again like to extend a tremendous thank you to all that came out and supported our efforts for the 86th Annual Huntington St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The festivities were an enormous success, the weather was great, and the attendees were not in short supply. So many came out to watch as our Grand Marshal; the Honorable W. Gerard Asher, as he led the procession down New York Avenue and Main Street. We look forward to hosting the parade on Sunday, March 13th 2022.
The Huntington St. Patrick’s Parade is Long Island’s oldest and largest, and features dozens of pipe bands, including some of the metro area’s finest. Few realize the expense to run such a major event, which includes band sponsorship fees, insurance, and advertising. Some mistakenly believe the Town runs and pays for the parade; it does not. The Huntington Ancient Order of Hibernians has organized and paid all of the costs of this wonderful parade every year since 1930 (there were no parades during WWII).
While the global pandemic may have cancelled this year’s festivities, work is already underway to make 2022 our biggest parade ever. While we all wait for safer conditions to gather, we ask that you join us for our one of a kind St. Patrick’s Day Virtual Event on March 14, 2021 at 2:00PM.
