Downtown Newark was all abuzz with excitement about the 81st annual Newark Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, the oldest-running in New Jersey!

The sun was shining and the air crisp on March 11, 2016 as the parade highlighted “Music in Our Schools Month” through the annual musical arts marching band competition. Newark Celebration 350 was proud to have supported the 81st Newark Saint Patrick’s Day Parade where Newarkers of all ages came out to celebrate and honor the Irish heritage by their dress, song and dance. Check out our highlight reel featuring step dancing, music and lots of craic!
