ALBANY – The city will host its St. Patrick’s Day parade in-person for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic began.

Mayor Kathy Sheehan announced Tuesday the parade will take place on March 12, barring any future prohibitions on large gatherings.

The city’s parade, the largest in the region, was among the first local events canceled in 2020 as coronavirus cases began rising in the Capital Region. The 2021 version was held as a virtual event with onlookers asked to stay home.
Parade  events will begin with the traditional Mass at Blessed Sacrament Church at 9 a.m. The parade will begin at 2 p.m. from the corner of Quail and Central avenues and end at State and Green streets.
