Seton Hall Pirates will be marching alongside bands, bagpipers, and spirited revelers from near and far at the St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City. Recognized as one of the oldest and largest parades in the world, the St. Patrick's Day parade draws about 250,000 marchers and 2 million spectators each year. Seton Hall students, parents, alumni, staff, family and friends are invited to put on their Kelly green and march together on Tuesday, March 17. Registration is required.

Irish Parade

Feeling Irish? Join Seton Hall in NYC on St. Patrick's Day.

"There is nothing quite like the St. Patrick's Day Parade and the feeling you get marching up Fifth Avenue," says Cheryl McCloskey, one of the alumni ambassadors for the Pirates of Irish Persuasion & Extraction (PIPE) Alumni Club, which is sponsoring the event for Seton Hall. "It's always a fun day and a great way to show your Pirate and Irish pride! We're looking forward to seeing our PIPE alumni and friends on the 17th."

PIPE alumni were part of the student organization at Seton Hall and/or share an affinity for Irish culture. The group's members are bonded by their shared enthusiasm for exploring Irish heritage at Seton Hall. Events hosted by the club included dinners, Masses, Irish cultural workshops and presentations, and trips to sites and events of Irish-American interest.
