Nutley Irish American Association president Thomas McEnery said, “We have been doing this for 42 years, we must be doing something right. We represent Nutley through the whole state with parades every weekend at dinners, every weekend and people really come up to us and say what a beautiful town it is […].”

Grand Marshal Karen M. Smith said, “[For] years as a spectator I got to see your law enforcement, wonderful people, your sanitation groups, everyone that supported the parade, but this year I go to see all the other things you commissioners have done, most importantly your participation […]. I thought it was a big deal when I retired and say what an honor it was to serve Belleville and Nutley for some many decades, but I tell you this is a whole different honor […] we get to include our extended families. […] I’m first generation, my dad was born in Ireland, so we really do make a big deal of it and in my family they’ll all be showing up and marching from age 1 to 90.”

Nutley’s 42nd annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be held on March 7 along Franklin Avenue. An Investiture Mass kicks off the parade at 10 a.m. at St Mary's Church, 17 Monsignor Owens Place. The parade lineup will begin at noon at the Holy Family Parking Lot and the parade will begin promptly at 1 p.m.
