Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, Philadelphia, PA
March 13, 2022
After a two year delay due to the Covid emergency, the 250th anniversary of the Philadelphia Saint Patrick’s Day Parade was finally held on Sunday March 13 and the 69th Pa “Irish Volunteers” were at the front of march. Their muskets were firing; their flags were waving in the wind and their ladies were in lead with the 69th banner. New Captain Michael Ernsberger led the regiment on the streets of Philadelphia on a cold and winding day. The day before the parade had seen a rain storm followed by a snow storm but the 69th was there to show It’s colors and honor the Irish community.
