Asbury Park St. Patrick’s Day Parade Announces 2019 Grand Marshal Dinner
On Sunday March 10th 2019 Asbury Park will host its 6th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The St. Patrick’s Day Parade has become an annual tradition attracting over 10,000 people to the city last year. This year’s parade has over 60 entries including marching units, award-winning mummers and traditional pipe & drum bands, floats from some of your favorite organizations and establishments including the Stone Pony, Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten and Lakehouse Recording Studio and dozens of attractions that are unique to this parade. From traditional to the unusual the parade will feature everything that is exceptional about Asbury Park. Prizes will be awarded this year in six categories; Best of Parade, Best Marching Band/Music, Best Animals/Pets, Best Youth (18 or under), Best Float, Best Costumes.
On March 7th the parade committee will be honoring the Asbury Park Rotary Club at the Grand Marshal dinner in the historic Convention Hall Grand Arcade with a fireworks display on the beach to follow. Tickets are $60 and will be available at the Stone Pony Box office and through Ticketmaster.com. Asbury Park St. Patrick’s Day Parade is funded solely through donations and local fundraisers.
In 2013 a committee gathered to produce a St. Patrick’s Day Parade that celebrates the diversity of the people & culture of Asbury Park. Much thought and planning went into the original concept to make certain that it was all inclusive and unique to Asbury Park while still incorporating the most loved traditions of a good old-fashioned parade. Each year the AP St. Patrick’s Day Parade has donated to charitable organizations including AP Little League, The Center, AP Historical Society, Victims of the Orlando Shooting, APFD Local 384 and AP Recreation, among others.
