Colour, Culture and Community for St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Waterford’s 2019 St. Patrick’s Day festivities will take place on Sunday March 17th and the headlining parade will celebrate Colour, Culture, and Community.
The Mayor of City and County of Waterford, Councillor Declan Doocey, is leading planning for the event. “Waterford has a rich tapestry of cultural influences throughout its history and this year’s parade in Waterford City aims to showcase how diversity has helped us to build stronger communities,” said the Mayor. “We hope community groups will embrace the theme and create a rainbow of colours throughout the city.
Already embracing this years theme are Waterford Children’s Group Link, pictured with Mayor Doocey, officially launching this years parade. The Children’s Group Link will celebrate their 40th year in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Organisers believe the parade theme will allow groups to incorporate aspects of their colours and culture from across the spectrum of community activities including: sport, food, business, hobbies, national associations and the arts.
The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is one of Waterford’s great community gatherings with hundreds of participants from all walks of life and it attracts in excess of twenty-thousand spectators. It will proceed from the Glen, along The Quay, Mall and Parnell Street where it concludes.
Parade entries are now open, groups and organisations interested in participating can obtain further information and apply via www.waterfordcouncil.ie.
