PHOTOS: Bay Ridge Saint Pat’s Parade celebrates at annual dinner dance

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for the Bay Ridge Saint Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, which celebrated its annual pre-parade dinner dance on Saturday, March 5 at Dyker Beach Golf Course.

The event served as a celebration of this year’s honorees, a roster parade President Frankie Marra lauds as one of the best yet.

“We’re so lucky in this community because we have a large slate to draw from of people who are just really involved in the community, and who really exemplify what Saint Patrick was about,” said Marra after the lineup was introduced at the end of January. “It’s just such a great slate of honorees.”

Grand Marshal James B. McHugh will lead off this year’s parade, followed by Deputy Marshals Clorita Galvin, Kathleen Burke, Maura Coughlin, Rhea McCone, Brian P. Kelly, Patrick Harkin, Peter Whalen and the Canny Brothers Band.

The 23rd Annual Bay Ridge Saint Patrick’s Day Parade will kick off on Sunday, March 20 at 1 p.m. It will start at the corner of Marine and Third Avenues, and run down the strip towards 67th Street.
