SUNNYSIDE, Queens (PIX11) – The annual St. Pat’s for All Parade is set to kick off at 1 p.m. Sunday to celebrate the immigrant communities of Queens.

The parade celebrates Irish and Celtic heritage, turning the streets of Queens into “Ireland of the welcomes,” a release said. It labels itself as the most “diverse” St. Patrick’s parade, embracing LGBT groups, children’s bands, Irish organizations and religious and civic groups.

The parade will be begin at 43rd Street and travel up Skillman Avenue to 56th Street. The post-parade party will be held at Saint & Sinners at 60th Street and Roosevelt Avenue.

Since the No. 7 train is not running due to scheduled repairs, shuttle buses will be available where trains are not running. Parade-goes from Manhattan can take the Q32 or Q60 buses to Sunnyside.

St. Pat’s for all was founded in 1999 as a celebration parade that welcomes everyone.
