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.
