UTICA-The Grand Marshal for the 2018 St. Patrick's Day Parade will be Judy Weeks, who has been involved with the Irish community for several years.

She started back in 2004 with the Irish Festival and was director for five years. She also directed the Saint Patrick's Day Parade for the past eight years.

"Due to circumstances I had to let go of a lot, but it's something that's in my heart and I love every minute of it, and I love the hundreds of people that I've met and worked very hard with," said Weeks. She added, "we've cried and we've laughed together and have done an amazing job, I think, for the community."

The Saint Patrick's Day Parade is schedule for March 17.
