One Queens community is working hard to bring a St. Patrick's Day celebration to their neighborhood.
Bayside residents have come together to form the Bayside St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee.
In order to raise funds for the celebration, the group has held several fundraisers at local businesses along Bell Boulevard, where the parade will take place.
Organizers believe that a parade in the neighborhood is long overdue.
"Rather than traveling out to Rockaway or other neighborhoods they could just come right here," said Kieran Mahoney, an organizer of the Bayside St. Patrick's Day Parade.
The committee is awaiting approval from the local police precinct for their parade permit.
Their hope is that the celebration will take place on March 24th of next year.
