St Patricks Day

Hello....why is St. Patrick's Day parade and all festivities on March 9th? St. Patrick's Day is on a Sunday this year so why aren't the celebrations on Saturday the 16th? Makes absolutely no sense! I mean really...the Easter Bunny is coming to the mall on March 9th and we are going to celebrate St. Patrick's Day on the same day? Crazy!!!!

Heard they are getting volunteers from the North Utica Motels to dress up as the Easter Bunner at the mall in exchange for free rooms.

I didn't know it was the 9th. That sucks as Syracuse's St. Paddy's day events are the 9th as well. What a shame.

another idiot move by Sullivan and his parade director. I hope they lose another 6,000.00 again this year too. The parade sucks from what it used to be a few years ago.

Yeah just does not make sense. I am Irish and love the holiday, but I will celebrate the following weekend as I am sure a lot will as well.

Good! I am sure all the bars will still have St. Parick's Day celebrations on the 16th which is more in line with the holiday that most planners are not aware of.

What else would you expect from this stupid city of Utica. I hear Utica is also celebrating July 4th on June 28th this year and Christmas a week earlier too, on the 18th of December. They still working on changing New Years Day.

the same band of two, still attempting to create problems where none exists. You two morons know full well that the parade date was changed to correspond with the fact that Syracuse changed their date and that both parades share many of the same bands and units. Move saves the parade committee money, not costs them more!

Since when wouldn't Irish men celebrate both weekends? As for no knowing about the change of date, BS! It was in the paper and on tv. But as in all things Irish in Utica, you know nothing about what goes on. But that doesn't stop you from making crap up and spewing it on this forum. Funniest thing is that, you are not in the loop and it's killing you. Stinks to be you.

If both Syracuse and Utica share many of the same bands and units, how do they propose to do that since Syracuse's parade is on the same day..March 9th?!!

Ummm look up the time frame...Utica 10am-noon and Syracuse starts at 11...therefore how do you propose that the bands/units come to Utica while they are still in route? No need for name calling.

I meant come to Syracuse FROM Utica when the line-up starts at 11:30 in Syracuse...parade in Utica is not over until noon therefore an overlap in time, packing up equipment and travel time to Syracuse.
