Come join in all the frivolity TODAY! Saturday, March 7th, in Wappingers Falls. The Parade steps off at 1:00 with lots of bands, floats, organizations, and this year's Grand Marshal,.Kieran Michael Lalor (Congratulations Kieran!)
I'll be there too! Look for me at the beginning of the Parade, marching proudly with all the past Grand Marshals. Be sure to wave!

And here's something you'll want to see. The Dutchess County St. Patrick's Parade Committee has put together a very interesting and entertaining video tracing the colorful history of this wonderful Hudson Valley tradition. It was my great pleasure to be the narrator and I came away with a warm appreciation for the history, pride and tradition of this event that continues to this day.
