 Parade sponsors, committees and dignitaries gathered at La Buona Vita restaurant in Dunmore Sunday night for the kickoff V-I-P dinner.
  The Scranton Saint Patrick's Parade Association spent the evening talking about what you'll see and hear at Saturday's big parade in the Electric City.
  Helping lead this year's parade will be former Scranton Mayor Jim Connors who was chosen as this year's parade grand marshall.
"I feel overwhelmed and honored at the same time and I really couldn't believe it when they called me up and asked me to be the grand marshal. And every young Irish kid in this town wants to be the grand marshal of the Saint Patrick's Day Parade." Connors said.
  Our Andy Mehalshick spoke at the kickoff vip dinner last night.
  Eyewitness News is a proud sponsor of the Scranton Saint Patrick's parade.
