Bostonians were the first to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in North America. On March 17, 1737, as a gesture of solidarity among the city’s new Irish immigrants, Boston’s Irish community joined together in festivities of their homeland and to honor the memory of the below Patron Saint of Ireland.
MAYOR OF SOUTHIE
The “Mayor of Southie” initiative has long been a tradition of the parade and provides a fun and unique way to give members of the South Boston community an opportunity to participate in the parade directly and be recognized for it, while working to help raise the funds necessary to hold the parade.
Since 1901, our Parade has only been possible by the generous contributions of friends, family, and community. We are self-supporting, and rely heavily on your help. Please donate what you can, and as always we greatly appreciate your support.
