Road Closures For Sunday’s West Hudson St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Residents should expect street closures and delays on Sunday, March 13th for the 2022 United Irish Association of West Hudson St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Harrison, East Newark & Kearny.

The following streets will be closed to vehicular traffic in East Newark:

  • Central Avenue between Frank E. Rodgers Blvd and North Second
  • North Second between Central Avenue and Sherman Avenue
  • Sherman Avenue between John Street and Frank E. Rodgers Blvd.

Street Closures will begin at 12:30 PM and last until 3:00PM.

The New York Red Bulls will host their home opener to the MLS soccer season at 2 p.m., Sunday, March 13, as scheduled against Minnesota United — and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which has always been on the same Sunday in March, will instead step off an hour earlier, at 1 p.m., so there’s not a nightmare traffic scenario in Harrison.

Mass to commence the parade will also be an hour earlier, at 11 a.m. instead of noon, at Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church.
