The Delray Beach St. Patrick's Day Parade will take place on Atlantic Avenue between the Intracoastal Bridge to NW 5th Avenue. Beginning at 12 PM and running through 2 PM, the parade will feature a cadre of honored marshals, performers, and Emerald-isle themed excitement. This year's Grand Marshals are the Women Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, along with other vets. The Palm Beach County Firefighter's Pipe and Drums Corps will join forces with the Greater Boston Firefighter Pipes and Drums, providing the resounding sounds of bagpipes and marching drums that are synonymous with this talismanic Irish holiday.

In particular, The Prodigals, an Irish-American band infusing classic Irish sound with modern uptempo rhythms will headline the center stage. In addition, Old School Square will have more Pipes & Drums, performances by the Aranmore Academy of Irish Dance, and even axe throwing.
