UTICA, N.Y.--- Nicholas Durr has been announced as the 2020 St. Patrick's Day Parade Grand Marshal. The big announcement was made at the Great American Irish Festival Hooley. The Hooley is the kickoff for the parade as well as a fundraiser.

Durr is the former Vice President of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick. He is also in charge of the Great American Irish Festival Mass. Durr has donated to multiple charities across the area including food pantries.

Durr tells NEWSChannel 2 that he is honored to be given this role. 

"Well, I didn't believe it. It's something that's not in my comfort zone, having attention put on me. But I lost the battle and everybody said you've gotta do it. It's for the right cause," said Durr.

John Sullivan was last year's Grand Marshal.

This year's parade is set for March 14th.
