SHERBURNE – Sherburne will go green Sunday, as the village celebrates its seventh annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.
More than 50 groups have already committed to marching in the parade, and additional groups, school organizations and families are welcome to join the excitement. The parade begins at 2 p.m. on Sunday at the fire house. Anyone participating in the event must be at the location no later than 1:30. “We’ll take people right up until then,” explained St. Patrick’s Parade Committee member Theresa Mastro.
The parade currently includes fire departments, bagpipe groups, horse groups, the historical society, local businesses and charitable organizations, as well as families and school groups.
Mastro said three bagpipe groups would be entertaining the crowd this year; the City of Syracuse Highland Pipe Band, Hobart Pipe and Drum from Oneonta and the Edward P. Maloney Memorial Pipe Band. In addition to the bagpipe groups, musical entertainment will also be provided by The Avant Garde Drum Corp. of Munnsville, a drum squad from the Unadilla Valley School District, local marching bands, a rock group from the Sherburne-Earlville school, the Milk House Boys and a local favorite, The Sons of Ireland.
