Family Pre-Parade Celebration
11:30am -2:00pm on the New Haven Green
Parade day fun and excitement begins on the New Haven Green, at Elm & Church, even before the anticipated parade marches downtown on Chapel Street. Parents, children and families are encouraged to save their front row seat on Church Street in the Family Viewing Area and to partake in the pre-parade festivities at the third annual Family Fun Zone. Our program line up includes: live musical performances, craft activities, face painting, hula hoops, a magician, out-door games and more! Adjacent to the viewing stands, close to the onsite food trucks and seating area, the Family Fun Zone is the place to be!

Please note** Parking in downtown New Haven Parking Authority garages/lots is only $3.00 on parade day**

The Family Fun Zone is presented in partnership with the Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the Town Green District and their ambassadors.
Free family friendly entertainment is offered along with activities that will involve children of all ages! Get your face painted with the New Haven Parks & Recreation Activity bus, explore the New Haven Fire Department Smoke Trailer, have fun in the MetroPCS free photobooth. Amazing Andy will be on hand to amaze and delight one and all with his magic, Montell Wright brings the music to get the celebration going and Nicole from Bring the Hoopla will have you swinging a hula hop in no time at all! The NH Town Green Ambassadors will monitor the FFZ area while you enjoy food from the food trucks located conveniently on Elm St. We also offer family friendly bathrooms with a changing table, tables & chairs, and a Stroller Viewing Zone on Church Street.
