**ST Patrick’s Day Parade Cancelled**

After the postponement of the last two Ocean City St Patrick’s Day Parades, organizers are promising this years event to be their biggest parade in event history.  First organized in 1980, the procession kicks off at 60th Street and continues south to the 45thStreet Village Parking Lot. Select marching units and floats are judged and awarded prizes, out of a total of hundreds of entries. Organizers also pride themselves in giving back to the community and have awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships over the years.

The Ocean City St. Patrick’s Day Parade is Saturday, March 12, promptly starting 12 noon. The Irish Festival will begin 11am at the 45th Street Village Parking lot. Although originally billed as a rain or shine event, if the weather forecast is predicting weather conditions which could threaten the Parade, a decision will be made no later than 9pm on Friday evening regarding its schedule.
