Parade began in Minot, MA in 1995 as a small procession around the block to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on the Irish Riviera. It was started by Jim and Janet Campbell and a few neighbors who had for years been talking about doing a little parade around the neighborhood.
The first parade included a couple of bands and some homemade floats, antique cars, and most of the neighborhood. After a couple of years the town asked the Campbells to move the parade to downtown Scituate Harbor as it was becoming a safety hazard with all the people jamming into the small Minot area to view it. The Campbells agreed, but passed the running of the parade to the Chamber of Commerce. Chamber member Paula Graham ran it for two years and then moved out of state.
Current Parade Chairman Ed Kelley took over the operation in 1999. The Parade was hosted by the Chamber from 1997 until 2015. The Scituate Harbor Business Association became the host in 2016. Now in 2018 the Parade committee is now the sponsoring host under the name "Scituate St. Patrick's Parade Inc. The Parade has since grown in size to 5 times its original length, and runs from the old Gate’s Middle School on First Parish Rd. through downtown Front St. Scituate Harbor and ends at 44 Jericho Rd. It is now considered the largest St. Patrick’s parade on the South Shore.
