An homage to Irish heritage in Holyoke
Originating as a modest celebration many years ago, this event has evolved into a prominent series of activities, ultimately becoming New England’s foremost Saint Patrick’s celebration.
The parade will kick off earlier this year at 11:10am from Kmart Plaza on Rt. 5 – Northampton Street and ends on High Street. Road closures typically begin around about an hour prior, so we recommend planning ahead and arriving with enough time to get to your location for viewing. Interstate 91 exits 15 and 16 are controlled by the Massachusetts State Police and are closed as conditions require.
