It all started when...

The Roots of the West Orange Parade can be traced back 65 years ago to two organizations that are still involved today. These Organizations are the Irish-American Society of the Oranges and the Frank O’Hara Association. They would march south along the west side of Main St. from Our Lady of Lourdes to the present site of the old A&P parking lot. The Parade has taken pride in honoring men and women from all walks of life. The Irish have always been proud of being both Americans and of Irish ancestry. They have been among the most patriotic immigrants this country has ever witnessed, winning more Congressional Medals of Honor than any other ethnic group.

The Brown Bear Pub location on Harrison Avenue has historically been the end of the parade where viewers would continue on the festivities providing good cheer and live music. We'll see you on the parade route!
