Come out and celebrate with fellow community members and families during the 2016 Allentown PA St. Patrick’s Day Parade! The first St. Patrick’s Parade on record was in the late 1860s, but the tradition as we know it has been in effect since 1955. Once organized by local businesses and political leaders through the St. Patrick’s Day Observance Society, the annual parade is just the beginning of the fun to be had this March in Allentown and Orwigsburg!
