86th St. Patrick’s Parade Set for Sunday

Long Island’s largest and oldest St. Patrick’s Day parade will step off Sunday at 2 p.m. with Justice W. Gerard Asher as grand marshal.

Marchers will leave from the Long Island Rail Road parking lot,  head north on Route 110 and then west on Main Street to St. Patrick’s Church.

The Huntington Ancient Order of Hibernians sponsors the parade, the 86th in Huntington’s history.

Asher was selected as Judge of the Year in 2009 by the Suffolk County Criminal Bar Association. In 2010, he was elected Justice of the State Supreme Court.

Suffolk County police said Route 110 will be closed from the Long Island Rail Road station north to Main Street, which will be closed between Spring Road and Lawrence Hill Road.

The closures will be between approximately 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Motorists should use Pulaski Road as a detour for eastbound and westbound traffic.

On-street parking will be prohibited after 4 a.m. on Route 110 and Main Street. Motorists should use alternate routes.
