The parade began in Minot, MA, in 1994 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 been talking about doing a little parade around the neighborhood for years.
The first St. Patrick's Day parade included some bands, 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. As of 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 five times its original length and runs from the Scituate Senior Center at 333 First Parish Rd down First Parish through downtown Front St. Scituate Harbor and ends at the Scituate Harbor Community Building at 44 Jericho Rd. It is now considered the largest St. Patrick's parade on the South Shore.
