The city of Harrisburg holds a St. Patrick’s Day parade

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (WHTM) — St. Patrick’s Day celebrations continued today as people packed downtown Harrisburg for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 18.

The parade featured marching bands, fire trucks, festive floats, Irish dance groups, and other local organizations.

“I think having this show is great because any excuse nowadays to get together as a community is always a great excuse. Especially with the feeling that this show brings, it’s just a celebration of what’s to come, spring and summer coming soon, so it’s just a really cool show,” said Betsy McCann. .

Before the parade, there was a four-mile Lucky Charm run to kick off the festivities.
