Delano St. Patrick's Day Parade
St.Patrick’s Parade in Historic Delano - Saturday, March 16th High Noon
In the late 1800s Delano became home to a number of immigrant populations, including Irish-Americans. Delano joins with more than 100 cities nationwide to celebrate this Irish heritage with a parade honoring St. Patrick - a tradition since the first St. Patrick’s Day parade was held in Boston in 1737.
Get your group together and come join True Oldies 1070 for a St. Patrick’s Parade in the
historic Delano district just west of downtown. The parade starts at high noon at the Arkansas River and proceed west on Douglas Avenue to Walnut Street.
They are looking for groups that would like to participate in the parade: churches, schools, scout groups, musicians or anyone with an idea for an entry. It can be anything; from people marching to an elaborate float or anything in between. The wackier the better - use your imaginations but remember the Irish theme!
On St. Patrick’s Day everybody is Irish!
Please complete and return your Parade Entry form as soon as you can.
Forms must be received no later than March 9th.
May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you wherever you go
