Since 1968 the Delray Beach St. Patricks Day parade has been Florida’s premiere parade. In 2010 the parade theme changed to pay tribute to the International Emergency Services community (Firefighters, Police, Paramedics). Word quickly spread through the circuit and to date the parade has been host to uniformed personnel from Canada, Ireland, Belgium, Australia, and all across the continental United States.
Coming from Miami up to Martin County, twelve fire department ladder trucks from twelve different Florida municipalities represent their communities by pairing up in two’s and hanging six flags across the parade street for all to pass under that creates a magnificent civic work of art that’s unparalleled. The Delray Beach St. Patrick’s Day parade is a major reason why Delray Beach has been labeled as “The most fun small town in America” by Rand McNally and USA Today! Mark your calendars and spread the word. The weekend of Saturday March 12, 2016. Learn More >
