The Girardville St. Patrick’s Day Parade committee is seeking floats, vendors and participants for the 17th annual parade scheduled to begin at noon Saturday, March 28.

It will feature five divisions and at least 16 bands with numerous additional floats, antique vehicles and special entries, according to a committee release. This year’s parade theme is “Salute to Our Veterans.” The grand marshal is the Rev. Lt. Col. Edward Coyle, a native of Girardville and national chaplain of the Catholic War Veterans.

Official 2020 parade T-shirts are available by calling parade committee Chairman Joseph Wayne at 570-590-1826 or stopping by the Hibernian House on Thursday evenings.

An outdoor celebration will follow the parade at the Hibernian House, Beech and Line streets. Vendors or organizations interested in participating in the parade — marching units and/or floats — may register online at or by calling Wayne at 570-590-1826 or Joanne Kitsock at 570-617-0400.
