4th Annual Celtic Classic Parade of Shamrocks
The Celtic Cultural Alliance is very excited to announce the 4th annual “Celtic Classic Parade of Shamrocks”! This St. Patrick’s Day celebration will take place in Historic Downtown Bethlehem, on Saturday, March 15th, 2014
Mark your calendars and get your viewing spot early! The parade will step off at 1:00pm beginning at 13th Avenue & Broad Streets. It will continue east on Broad to Main Street and makes its way south on Main Street, ending under the Hill-To-Hill Bridge.
We have space available in the lineup for anyone interested in marching in the parade. Gather your clan and join us! We encourage floats and other creative show pieces.
Downtown Bethlehem will be awash in green, the sound of bagpipes and the sight of Irish dancers. We are honored to have local high school and middle school bands and many local businesses. You will see some of your favorite community groups like the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, along with beautiful floats!
Plan on spending St. Patrick’s Day in Historic Downtown Bethlehem. Get here early for the best viewing spots and stay after the parade to enjoy some of the great restaurants and shops that Bethlehem has to offer.
We would like to thank our generous sponsors for making this event possible. Please patronize these local businesses when you are in Bethlehem
