On Sunday, March 13, 2016, the Town of Kearny celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by participating in the 43rd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade organized by the United Irish Associations of West Hudson. The Parade began in Harrison and traveled along Frank E. Rodgers Boulevard in Harrison, Central Avenue in East Newark and Kearny Avenue in Kearny, with a closing ceremony at Kearny Town Hall.
Congratulations to this year’s Parade Grand Marshal Honorable Mayor James A. Fife (Harrison) and Deputy Grand Marshals Barbara Cifelli-Sherry (Kearny) and Mary Anne Dunphy (Harrison). Residents and community leaders throughout West Hudson came out in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. This year’s parade featured over 50 groups and 1,000 marchers and included local High School and Junior High School Marching Bands, Pipe Bands and Irish dancers. It was a great day to be Irish!
Mayor Alberto G. Santos and the Town Council extend sincere thanks to participants and spectators for making this year’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration a great success.
