The Providence College Club of New York is proud to once again sponsor an alumni group to march in the 251st annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in Manhattan, on Saturday, March 17th!
Please join your fellow alumni representing PC as they march up 5th Avenue in the longest running parade in the United States since 1762! Past participants have included alumni of all ages and their families (strollers are most welcome). Non PC friends and family are also welcome, though we ask that they also register.
Our group of PC Alumni will assemble at the beginning of the parade route (50 West 46th Street between 5th and 6th Ave) at 12:40pm. When looking for the PC
contingent, we will be after St. John's University and before County
Kildare. March time is approximately one hour.
Are you looking to stay in Manhattan the night before or the night of the parade? The parade organization has arranged discounted accommodation at The Helmsley Park Lane Hotel 212-371-4000 (discount code: WPKG55). Another option for accommodation is the Double Tree Time Square 212-719-1600.
The Providence College Club of New York City will also be hosting an after party at the end of the parade on the Upper East Side of Manhattan at The Sea Horse Tavern from 4pm - 7pm (303 East 85th St. just off 2nd Avenue).
Cost: A $25 donation includes a green PC sash (required to march) and entry to the after party. Sashes will be given out on site at the beginning of the parade.
If you are joining us on the bus from CT or RI, please add $15 to also include bus transportation to and from NYC.
