"Old Neighborhood" St. Patrick's Day Parade
Immediately following the parade is the traditional grand Irish “Hooley” featuring live music as well as plenty of food and drink. The “Hooley” runs from 1pm-6pm at the Valley Community Center, located at 93 Leddy Street, Buffalo, New York.
The Hooley serves as a fundraiser for the Valley Community Association’s services and programs, which include affordable child care that is nurturing, educational, and stimulating for children ages 6 weeks and up; academic, social, and recreational programming for school age youth; programs and services for senior citizens that promote socialization and wellness; family support services including a food and clothing pantry, resume preparation, job search assistance, and help navigating the human service system; community events such as the Buffalo River Fest and the “Old Neighborhood” St. Patrick’s Day Parade; and neighborhood beautification projects such as the Buffalo River Fest Park, Mutual Riverfront Park, and Valley Nature Park & Habitat Trail.
