St. Patrick’s Day 2011 Events Philadelphia – Parade Since 1771
Sunday, March 13 -11:00 AM – 241st Annual Philadelphia St. Patrick’s Day Parade on the Beautiful Benjamin Franklin Parkway
It’s a great day for the Irish and those who wish they were to come and view the second oldest, continuously held St. Patrick’s Day Parade in America, which has been held since 1771, five years prior to American Independence in 1776.
The annual event features Irish American bands, dancers, and cultural organizations from throughout the Greater Philadelphia region, and in some cases, from beyond. Try to get there early for a good vantage point. Note: Unlike the Mummers Parade on New Year’s Day, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade is on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, not Broad Street.
