It is a tradition of almost all of the St. Patrick's Day Parades to have a pin to represent the parade. Our pin is full of symbolism this year, and we would like to share it with you. The Sword is the Gaelic symbol of justice, and our Grand Marshal Hon. Karen M. Smith is a retired judge and former prosecutor. The plaid on the pin is symbolic of the Cockburn tartan which is the tartan of South Park District Pipes and Drums, the band which our Deputy Grand Marshal Brian Blum is a drummer. The shape of the pin might seem a little unique and might look familiar. It's the shape of an acorn and is the same acorn that is in the seal of the Township of Nutley! The names of all of our dignitaries of this year's parade can be found on the back of the pin. We hope to see you today, Saturday, March 7th 1pm Harrison St to Franklin Avenue!
