It was an "All things Irish" weekend in Allentown during St. Patrick's weekend. We kicked things off by participating in the annual Irish Cultural Community Day on Saturday, and wrapped things up by strutting our stuff in the St. Patrick's Day parade through Allentown's West End on Sunday. We have enjoyed a long-time relationship with organizers of both events, and it was great to be back again this year.

Both events are provided to the community at no cost each year, which surely helps attract large attendance. That, combined with Mother Nature's kindness in delivering two great weekend weather days this year helped turn the events into blockbusters.

This year's Parade was extra fun. It featured us, of course, along with 10 pipe bands, eight divisions, and more than 2,000 marchers from organizations, schools, companies and community groups from through the greater Lehigh Valley area and beyond.

Event organizers are outstanding, and always make sure participants and crowds alike have a lot of fun to enjoy the Irish cultural heritages being celebrated. Putting things together is literally a year-round labor of love from a group of highly engaged and dedicated volunteers-- many who have been involved with these events for years. We were so happy to be invited to return, and we already look forward to our return in 2025!
