16th Annual Sussex Co. St. Patrick's Day Parade

16th Annual Sussex Co. St. Patrick's Day Parade

Please also join us at the main event, the 16th annual Sussex County St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Newton on Saturday, March 16, when VVA Chapter 1002 will lead more than 900 marchers down Spring Street, Newton in front of thousands of spectators.

The parade begins at 11:30 a.m. The line of march will proceed up Spring Street, turning right onto Moran Street and onto Memory Park. These streets will close beginning at 11 a.m.

The parade will feature nearly 100 units including Veterans and Active Members of the Armed Services, Police, Fire and EMS, elected officials, bands, floats, Irish Step Dancers, Community Organizations, local schools, accompanying service and antique vehicles, and a variety of pets. There will also be Irish theme characters and sweets and other free treats for children.

We are pleased to announce that Mark Hontz will again be our Parade M.C. Mark is a favorite of the spectators and Parade participants alike. He has a pleasant way of warming up the crowd with his wit, Celtic songs and self-accompaniment on his bagpipes; not to mention Mark’s charming commentary as the Parade units pass by the reviewing stand on Spring Street.

If your group or organization is interested in joining the parade, please complete a parade application and return it to the Sussex Co. St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee no later than March 8th.
