Organizers of the Yonkers 66th St Patrick's Day Parade, to be held on Saturday, March 18, have launched an online sign-up sheet for groups interested in marching.

The Yonkers St. Patrick's Day Parade will march up McLean Avenue - aka "The Emerald Mile" - on March 18, with step-off at 1 pm.

Organizers are now inviting groups to sign up to march in this annual celebration of Irish heritage via this online form.

Bands will be contacted after signing up online for confirmation and contracts.

The week before the parade, the annual dinner dance will be held on Saturday, March 11 at the Castle Royale in Yonkers, New York. 

Organizers said that the annual dinner dance and the parade journal provide the majority of funds needed to run the parade.

"All our funds come from our loyal supporters," organizers said. "We do not accept state or federal subsidies and are extremely grateful to the City of Yonkers which provides Police, Recreation, and DPW services."

Platinum journal ads are $1,000, emerald journal ads are $500, gold journal ads are $250, and white journal ads are $100 which can also be purchased online.

The final deadline for ads to be displayed at the parade dinner dance is March 9. Ads can be placed after that date and will be available for viewing for one year. For more information about ads, you can contact Vic Costa at 914 237-7134  or irishparadejournal [@]
