Every year, tens of thousands of people turn out for the biggest homecoming in town to watch the St. Patrick's Parade make its way down the streets of Holyoke. Whether you're a lifelong fan, new to town or living halfway across the world, you won't want to miss a moment of this beloved community event.
Each year, it costs approximately a half a million dollars to produce a Parade and Road Race of this caliber, complete with spectacular special events and renowned award winners. Without the generosity of our sponsors, this incredible annual celebration and homecoming event would not be possible.
