Saint Patrick's Day Parade 2017
As temperatures hovered between 22 and 27 degrees, 17 brave men and 5 brave
women of the 69th Pa faced the cold and marched in the Philadelphia Saint
Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday March 12. The new parade route of 17 blocks
took the valiant members of the "Irish Volunteers" from City Hall to Independence
Hall to The Irish Memorial on the Delaware River. This year our regimental and
National flags led the parade as we marched in the first brigade.
