If there’s one parade that rain cannot ruin (and maybe even enhance), it’s the Coney Island Mermaid Parade. The colorful aquatic attendees of the 35th annual parade on Saturday, June 17 just swam right on through it, showing off their big smiles and imaginative costumes, with many leaving little to the imagination. That’s what it’s […]

Much like the Scranton St. Patrick’s Parade the day before, the turnout to the 37th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Wilkes-Barre on Sunday, March 12 was hindered by the bitter cold weather that preceded the record-setting snowfall of Winter Storm Stella. You can’t keep the Irish spirit down, however, so the parade marched on. […]

As light flurries blew through and temperatures dropped to their lowest numbers in years, some questioned whether or not the 2017 Scranton St. Patrick’s Parade would march on or be delayed.
