body

Since its inception, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee has been the driving force behind the annual Parade; coordinating and managing all efforts in bringing the community together to ensure the success of this treasured event. The 2020 St. Patrick’s Day Parade will feature nearly 200 marching units, including bands, floats, several police, fire and emergency service agencies, elected leaders, along with many groups from Pittsburgh’s Irish community. This year, the parade committee has dedicated the 2020 St. Patrick’s Day Parade to in memory of Glenn Cannon, Esq. - a longtime member of the Pittsburgh Irish community and former Public Safety Director for the city and head of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency. Allegheny County Council commends the Pittsburgh St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee for their diligent efforts and dedication to making the annual Parade an unmatched celebration of Irish heritage.
