2018 marked another successful year for Pinckney’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

For the 14th straight year, The Village of Pinckney played host to the festive St Patrick’s Day celebration along Main Street. The morning started off with Scottish Dancers on Main Street, young children dressed up for The Cutest Leprechaun Contest, followed by the parade at noon. An estimated 3,000 people turned out to watch the parade make its way down the streets of Pinckney. Bagpipe bands, dancers, first responders, floats, and walkers all participated in the parade. Founder of the parade, Pasty McGuire-Haggerty Dible told WHMI the event couldn’t have gone any better.

The annual parade is funded through donations, support of local businesses, and through the use of sponsors. This year’s major sponsors included Pinckney Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Pinckney Putnam Hamburg Hell Chamber, and Rick Beaudin ReMax. Dible told WHMI she thinks this year was the best parade yet and confirmed there will be another parade next year. She said she sees the St. Patrick’s Day Parade going on forever and only getting bigger and better each year. (DF)
