2019 Colleens get together to celebrate the parade season

Hampden County

The countdown is on, we’re now exactly two weeks away from St. Patrick’s Day.

Former Colleens and members of their court gathered at The Wherehouse? in Holyoke Sunday afternoon to celebrate the parade season.

22News spoke with Hannah Jury, this year’s Westfield Colleen, who said the experience has helped her learn to appreciate her Irish heritage.

“I’ve always admired the Colleens so to be in a position like that is really exciting for younger girls to look up to me and also like I said earlier come more in tune with my Irish culture and how fun it is,” said Jury. 

The sights and sounds of the 68th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be broadcasted on the CW Springfield and streaming online at wwlp.com on Sunday, March 17th at noon.
