Parade Program


The 39th Annual Mahoning Valley St. Patrick's Day Parade will be held on Sunday, March 12th, 2017.   The Parade will step off at 1:00 PM and proceed north on Market Street from McClurg Road to Southwoods Avenue. Boardman has proven to be an excellent venue for the Valley’s Biggest Parade. Co-sponsors of the Parade this year will again be the Mahoning Valley Irish Organizations, WFMJ TV-21 and The Vindicator. We are inviting you to join the Parade and 25,000 to 30,000 of the Valley’s finest spectators to celebrate this family tradition.


The theme of the Parade this year is “MAY THE IRISH BE WITH YOU”


The Grand Marshal for 2017 is Edward Reese, our Lord Mayor of Kilkenny is Kevin McGuire. The Ockerman Award recipient is Bob Hankey, and the Cleary Award will be given to Sharon Sabatka .


Leading the Parade will be our Shamrock Balloon.


Free program booklets will be distributed to the spectators along the parade route. These 8˝ by 11 inch programs will contain the best wishes of some of the Valley's leading individuals and companies.
