MORRISTOWN, NJ - Grab those green shirts and Irish sweaters...it's time to channel your inner leprechaun at "Morris County's largest family oriented St Patrick's Day Parade" on Saturday March 12 in Morristown.

Last year over 70,000 people attended the parade. With meteorologists from the National Weather Service predicting temperatures in the 60's, parade organizers are anticipating a much larger crowd for Saturday. In the parade's history, the event was only canceled twice, once in 1993 and again in 2010.

The first parade in 1991 had 3000 marchers and 13 bands. This year's parade has 124 groups marching  and 21 bands. To see a full list of those marching, click HERE

"I rearranged our baseball practice on Saturday so that our team can come and watch the parade together," said Morristown Travel Baseball Coach Mike O'Neill. "After all, we are the Morristown Shamrocks".

The parade enlists the help of  75 volunteers, who have logged in over  2500 hours preparing for the event. The event will kick off with Pre Parade Festivities  at 10:30am on "The Green" with music from The Blarney Session, The National Anthem sung by Molly Halbach, Irish Step Dancing by DeNogla-Ardmore Academy of Irish Dance and Slattery School of Irish Dance, TJ and Sussex Avenue School Band, and Chalking of the Shamrocks. 

At 12 noon, John P. Hyland, the 2016 Grand Marshal will lead the parade from behind Morristown Town Hall,  down South Street, around the Morristown Green and end on Atno Avenue.

May you enjoy the parade with the blessings of St. Patrick today and everyday, wrote the Trustees of the St. Patrick's Day Parade of Morris County on their website.
