The 2012 St. Pat’s For All Parade was held on Sunday, March 4, beginning in Sunnyside at 47th Street and Skillman Avenue and ending in Woodside at 58th Street and Woodside Avenue.

The parade featured a wide variety of marchers, from residents and elected officials to community groups and visitors from the Emerald Isle. The grand marshals were Peter Quinn, a novelist and Irish historian, and Mary Brosnahan, executive director of the Coalition for the Homeless.

First held more than a decade ago, the parade celebrates the diversity of the Irish communities of New York and is open to all feeling green.

“I think the parade was one of the largest we have ever had,” said Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer. “The weather was unusually good. We had a lot of marchers and it was a very fun parade.”
