The Hackettstown Business Improvement District is bringing the 14th Annual St. Patrick’s Parade to town, Sunday, March 12th. This Irish-American tradition attracts more than 14,000 visitors—making this parade one of the biggest events in Hackettstown. Streets fill with enthusiasm as families, residents and visitors line up along the curb, in store windows and porches to celebrate and witness the festive parade.

The parade will kick off at 3:30 pm with Grand Marshal Mr. Robert “Bob” Moore leading numerous participants including Irish dance groups, Irish bands, community groups, bagpipes and drums, Centenary University and Hackettstown High School teams and clubs, Hackettstown and surrounding area fire departments and rescue squads, as well as hometown favorites Junior and Senior Colonial Musketeers and the Hackettstown Community Band.

This parade is pet-friendly, with a special pet costume contest sponsored by Doggie Styleash. Dress your pets for the chance to win prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd places. Judging will be held at Czig Meister Brewing, located at 106 Valentine St.  Pets will then be invited to walk the parade as St. Patrick and Irish Heritage costume contestants after judging.
