Go Green, Go Bragh: St. Pat's Parade to Take Over Morristown Saturday

Morris County's largest parade to kick off at noon on South Street.

Everyone in Morris County will be Irish on Saturday, regardless of one's roots.

The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is set to march through the county seat in Morristown, kicking off at noon at the corner of South and James Streets.

According to the parade’s website, there will be some 20 bands marching and playing, along with a total of 70,000 combined spectators and marchers.

The day actually begins with Mass at Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Maple Avenue at 10 a.m.

Over on the Green, at 10:30 a.m., Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfe Tones will perform, the National Anthem will be sung, and there will be Irish step dancing among other activities.

F. Jeff Rawding of Convent Station was named the parade’s Grand Marshal earlier this year, and a reception was held for him on March 7.

The parade will march up South Street and three-quarters of the way around the Green, heading up Washington Street, then right onto Atno Avenue where it will come to an end.

Attendance for the parade is free.
