The Fifth Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade sponsored by Jack Kehoe Division No. 1 will be held in Girardville on Saturday, March 19, 2011 starting at 12 Noon sharp. This years parade is dedicated to Sports, both past and present, and our Irish Heritage. The parade will be preceded by Mass at 10:00 AM at St. Joseph's Church, 211 W. Main Street.


This years parade is expected to have in excess of 200 entries, making it one of the larger parades in Pennsylvania. There will be pipe and drum bands, high school bands, string bands and other bands, plus many other floats and marching units. Many A. O. H. units will be in the line of march also.


After the parade there will be Irish entertainment and food and refreshments at several locations around the town. This years commemorative booklet with the parade program will feature a history of the local sports scene.

Entries can register up until 11:30 AM the morning of the parade at the Girard Hose Co. No. 1 located at 120 E. Main Street, although an early registration will ensure a better spot in the parade line-up. Registrants can also register by mail by sending the organization information, including the name and type of organization and number of marchers to John "Mouche" Mc Nelis, Parade Chairman, 102 W. South St., Mahanoy City, PA 17948. Plan to get into town early because parking will be at a premium and the town will be closed to traffic after 10:00 AM.


The Parade Committee would appreciate your participation in this annual event. Trophies will be awarded. Deadline for registration is March 22nd. Late registrations will be taken up until 11:30am on the date of the parade, however last minute registrations will be placed at the rear of the parade line-up.
