Brian Corridan St. PatricksHOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB) — This year’s Holyoke Saint Patrick’s Parade Grand Marshall was honored tonight with a ball at the Log Cabin.

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.
