Irish or not, it wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day in the city without the Pittsburgh St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The family-oriented parade celebrating Ireland’s patron saint is a Pittsburgh tradition that dates back to 1869. There has been a St. Patrick's Day parade in Pittsburgh as early as 1869. On March 17th, 1869, the procession of St. Patrick was impeded by a number of wagons being unloaded at the emporium of Joseph Liebler. The newspaper states that the police would not hasten deliverymen so the parade could pass because the businessmen did such a voluminous business.
