Thousands get ready for Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day ParadePosted: Updated:
Thousands will gather on the “Emerald Mile” in Yonkers Saturday for the 64th annual McLean Avenue St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
The event honors the contributions of the Irish community.
Chef Benny Roddy, of Rory Dolan’s Restaurant and Bar, has been busy preparing food for more than a week and is expecting to serve thousands.
But for many parade revelers, it’s more than just about food.
"It's family and a happy day…That should be what life's about," said one Yonkers resident.
The parade begins at 1 p.m. at McLean Avenue and Bronx River Road.
