David Crowe Day – March 17, 2022



March is a great time of year when we are all Irish, and one of the best ways we celebrate is with a St. Patrick’s Parade.

David Crowe, Proprietor of the Belfast Gastropub, was recognized by the Lindenhurst Village Board with a day in his honor – St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, 2022 – for conceiving the idea, and organizing the first-ever St. Patrick’s Parade in the nearly 100-year history of the Village.  Located at 101 North Wellwood Avenue, the Belfast Gastropub opened its doors last year, bringing Irish food, drink, music and tradition to the Village Downtown.

Mayor Michael Lavorata said, “I am so grateful to David Crowe and the rest of the Lindenhurst St. Patrick’s Parade Committee – RJ Renna, Kevin McCaffrey, and Katie Schrader – for organizing this fun, family event, celebrating Irish heritage, and the Patron Saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, in the Village of Lindenhurst.”

The Lindenhurst St. Patrick’s Parade will step off at 11:00 AM, on Saturday, March 26th, from Fireman’s Park, traveling west on Hartford Street, turning south on Wellwood Avenue, and proceeding to the Middle School.  Come out and enjoy a day of Irish fun!
