Letterkenny St.Patrick’s Day Parade – get involved today

first_imgThere is lots of planning going on behind the scenes for this years Letterkenny St.Patrick’s Day Parade and Letterkenny Chamber is making an appeal for groups, clubs, schools and businesses to get involved.We have dancers, gymnasts, sports clubs and community organisations already making their plans for the annual Parade that is taking place on Sunday 17th March but we need many more to keep the parade as one of the biggest in the County.For businesses it is an opportunity to get in front of 10,000 spectators, for community groups it is a way of getting your cause and group recognised. And for everyone it is a great afternoon out and remember there is always the chance of winning the €500 for the best entry. Chamber President Leonard Watson said “The parade is organised by Letterkenny Chamber and its volunteers are busy raising money from businesses large and small. With the support of businesses we will be able to cover all the costs of the Parade but we are making an appeal for more entries from groups and businesses.“St. Patrick’s Day is always an important event in the calendar and it marks the start of the Spring season for all of us in business. This year it falls once again at a weekend so we are expecting a high number of spectators. This year we are celebrating “Letterkenny Together” and we know everyone will get into the spirit of celebrating all things Irish and show how proud they are of Letterkenny and Donegal.”“This year, in a change from the norm, we are asking walking entries and walking entries attached to motorised floats to assemble at An Grianan Theatre Car Park. The motorised entries will line up as usual along Pearse Road and the walking entries will be filtered in to the parade from the Theatre. So spectators will get the best vantage points from the Main Street.”The Parade starts at 3pm on Sunday 17th March making its way from Station Roundabout (Tesco) via Port Road, through the Main Street past the viewing platform at Market Square to finish in Old Town.
