The line-up is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. and start time is 1 PM. The parade will proceed up Johnson Boulevard to Monmouth Street, marching up Monmouth Street towards King Street ending up at Proprietor’s Park, King Street, and Jersey Avenue.

At last year’s parade, Monmouth Street exploded with Kelly Green and the sounds of Bagpipes, String Bands, and Irish Dancers, as the large crowds sang and danced along waving their Irish Flags.
