The 85th annual Huntington St. Patrick’s Parade steps off at 2 p.m. this Sunday, March 10 with Timothy Rossiter leading the way as Grand Marshal.

The parade is Long Island’s oldest and largest St. Patrick’s parade. It is sponsored by the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Div. 4, Huntington, whose members march in traditional gray morning suits. You may see a top hat and even a shillelagh or two among the formally dressed brothers as they lead a parade of community groups down New York Avenue to Main Street and past the reviewing stand near St. Patrick’s Church.

The sound of bagpipes will fill the air as this year’s parade features an even dozen pipe and drum bands. The schools, scouts, fire departments and other community groups will be joined by 100 Alaskan Huskies and their handlers from Empire Snow Dogs.
