12PM – Pittston’s St. Patrick’s Parade
Irish dancers, pipe bands and much more. Pittson’s St. Patrick’s Parade has grown year over year and 2018 looks to be the biggest yet. Join us on Main Street for a parade you won’t soon forget. And we even have a new feature this year: “LITTLE MISS & MR. LEPRECHAUN”.
