2019 Coronation of King and Queen Phillip and Kimberly Ferguson to be held March 15.
Allentown St. Patrick’s Parade to take place March 17.
Phil and Kim Ferguson are thrilled and honored to have been selected as the King and Queen of 2019 Allentown St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Phil’s parents, Patrick and Marian Ferguson, served as King and Queen in 1991, and Phil’s brother and sister-in-law, Sean and Wendy Ferguson, were King and Queen in 2010. Phil’s Irish roots run deep, and he has traveled to Ireland many times with Kim and family, but nothing compares to the last trip with his father in 2015 when they were able to connect with family in County Mayo. There he learned of his family history going back to his great-great- grandfather. Phil, a member of both the AOH and Hogan’s Social Club, has been active on the Parade Committee since he was a teenager, and currently serves as Vice-President/Operations Director. Kim, also of Irish descent, was born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth. She is also an active Parade Committee volunteer who has not missed a parade in 18 years.
Kim, a graduate of Nazareth High School, is the Office Manager at Ian D. Webb Insurance. Kim was a youth Cheerleading Coach and Treasurer for CYCA when Jessica was in school. Phil, a William Allen High School graduate, currently works at Kids Peace. He is a former route/sales manager for Stroehmann and Frito Lay. He coached CYAA and Connie Mack baseball for many years and served as Operations Director with the Allentown Flag Day Association and several military parades.
