To start, the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Manchester is earlier than it has typically been in the past.

The 2016 Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade will be held on Sunday, March 20th. The parade steps off at noon on by the intersection of Salmon and Elm Street (by the Brady Sullivan tower) and then proceeds down Elm before ending the intersection with Auburn Street. As always, the event is rain or shine.

This year's parade honors the Heroes and Martyrs of the 1916 Easter Rising, which approaches it's 100th Anniversary this April. For additional details and updates, visit They're also providing updates on Facebook.
