A Marshal Mania Kick Off Concert was held in Holyoke Friday night.
The St. Patrick’s Committee of Holyoke hosted the fundraiser for its committee at the Wherehouse?.
The event had raffles, food, and music from Holyoke resident Ed Jackowski and a U2 cover band, Unforgettable Fire.
Holyoke Parade Committee President Devin Scheehan told 22News the event sold out a week ago, selling around 400-tickets.
He said, “Everyone knows of us on parade day, but they also need to know we do things every day of the year.”
The event is named to honor the grand marshal of the parade committee.
