Let the shenanigans begin. Delray Beach's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade & Festival is free and it's a jam-packed event for the entire family. Admission is free. The Delray Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade is an annual tradition that began in 1968 after a local Irishman and pub owner named Maury Power strolled down Atlantic Avenue with his Shillelagh and a green pig. Maury's legendary stroll down Atlantic Ave was just the beginning of what has become one of Florida's biggest St. Patrick's Day parades. The parade begins Saturday at 2 pm and runs along Atlantic Ave with the official start area being E Atlantic Ave at the intracoastal and ending at NW 5th Ave. Previous attendees of the Parade know to arrive early with their lawn chairs so they can stake out a great viewing spot. Spectators are spotted as early at 10:30 or 11 am every year laying claim to their viewing spot. There are more than 70 floats, marching bands, motorcycles, fire engines, pipes and drums creeping down Atlantic Avenue along with local nonprofit organizations, businesses, schools, civic organizations, veterans, police, firefighters, and EMS representatives. This year's event marks the 53rd annual St. Patrick's Day Parade & Festival.
The festival is Saturday from 11 am - 8 pm in downtown Delray Beach. At the festival enjoy live music; indulge on treats at a food truck or booth; or splurge on merchandise that is being peddled or arts & crafts. There will be games, raffles, kids activities, and a Pipes & Drums performance. Highlights of the St. Patrick's Day Parade & Festival include Live Music, Food Trucks, Vendors, and Raffles. There is a kids area with exciting games and activities too. See if you have the Luck o' the Irish by entering a raffle to win a great prize.
