2012 St. Patrick's Day Parade in Buffalo

blog by S.J. Velasquez  • 

When it comes to St. Patrick’s Day festivities, Buffalo really goes for double the fun.

This year—like in years past—Buffalo will host two St. Patrick’s Day parades. The first, and arguably more “authentic” of the two because it stays true to Buffalo’s original parade route, takes place March 16 in Buffalo’s Old First Ward. Known as the Old Neighborhood St. Patrick’s Day Parade, it retraces the original 1913 parade path, and has been going strong since 1994. The Old Neighborhood parade starts at noon on South Park Avenue and will be led by grand marshal Ann Hinman McMahon.

On March 17, travel to Delaware Avenue for the big daddy of Buffalo parades. Sponsored by the United Irish American Association since 1940, the downtown parade will be led by grand marshal Mark R. O’Neill, of Hamburg. The parade kicks off at 2 p.m., following a 10:30 a.m. mass at St. Joseph’s Cathedral.

Both parades will include floats, classic cars, marching bands, Irish dancers and more. Visit our galleries from last year’s Old First Ward and Delaware Avenue parades.

And to get yourself in the spirit, check out our Buffalo.com Harlem Shake video featuring Kat and me, along with some of our Irish dancing friends:
