Ryan Doherty to Head Glen Cove St. Pat's Parade
By Niall Fitzgerald
The Glen Cove Saint Patrick's Parade will take place on Sunday, March 19, 2023, at 1PM, with Ryan Doherty, as the Grand Marshal.
The parade was founded in 1989, and takes place each year on the Sunday after St. Patrick’s Day.
The Grand Marshal of the 2023 parade, Ryan Doherty, is a Sergeant with the New York MTA Police, and a son of Irish immigrants to Long Island. He and his family have been deeply involved in organizing the Glen Cove St. Patrick’s Day Parade since its inception.
Joining Ryan in leading the Parade will be a large group of Aides to the Grand Marshal who, like him, are the descendants of past Grand Marshals of the Parade.
Glen Cove Mayor Pam Panzenbeck will be leading the parade with the Grand Marshal, and will be joined by the City Council, and elected members of the County and State governments.
The Parade begins to form up at 12 noon in the area of the Finley Middle School at Forest Avenue and Dosoris Lane in Glen Cove. It steps off at 1 pm and proceeds through the streets of downtown Glen Cove. There is ample parking at Glen Cove’s municipal parking garages and elsewhere and shuttle buses will run between the parking areas and the formation area. The heart of the parade, as always, will be its exciting mix of marching groups, including bands of Irish pipers and other musicians, along with vintage cars, costumed performers, fire and police units, and much more. The parade is a true community celebration with marching groups from the Irish and the many other ethnic groupings who live in the area taking part.
