Parade starts at Skillman Ave at 43rd St and proceeds along Skillman Ave to 56th St, Sunnyside, Queens. Subway: 7 to 40th St, 46th St, 52nd St. Remartks at 1pm; steps off at 2pm. For those—like Mayor De Blasio—who are unimpressed by the New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade's rather cynical decision to allow one (non-Irish) gay group to march for the last couple of years, this more intimate outer-borough promenade offers an inclusive chance to celebrate all things Emerald Isle without all the unsavory homophobia. Expect dancers, bands, puppeteers and much more. This year's marshals are activist Kerry Kennedy and actor Brían F. O'Byrne.
