Brian Corridan has been a member of the Chicopee Parade Committee for decades.
He was the Chicopee Parade Marshall in 1994 and has been the TV host of the Holyoke Parade since 2003.
Corridan says he is humbled to the 62nd Grand Marshall.
“The 61 people before me have been people in the community of stature. They’re just wonderful people, who are strong in their community and their faith, and in their love for the Irish heritage. So for me, as grand marshal of the Holyoke parade, it will not be about the walk I take, it will be about the footsteps in which I travel,” explains Corridan.
ABC 4o’s own Dave Madsen emceed tonight’s event.
The Holyoke Saint Patrick’s Parade will be held Sunday, March 17.
