By Staff Writer:

The APB News camera team was out in front of St Patrick’s Cathedral this morning to witness the return of the St Patrick’s Day Parade.

It was the first parade staged in New York City since COVID appeared, and it was the first parade canceled when the city locked down.

This year’s Grand Marshall was James T. Callahan, General President of the International Union of Operating Engineers.

The marchers headed down 5th Avenue in the rain, including Governor Kathy Hochul, Mayor Eric Adams, Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell, the New York City Police Department Marching Band, and many others. Acting FDNY Commissioner Laura Kavanagh, Acting Chief of Department John Hodgens and FDNY members also took part in the parade.

Missing was Cardinal Timothy Dolan who was in St Louis mourning the passing of his 93 year old mother. The NYPD reported no incidents or arrests.
