The Parade (YOU definitely won’t want to miss this!)

2:00 PM along Atlantic Avenue from the Intracoastal west past Swinton!

This annual parade begins at the Intracoastal Bridge and heads west past Swinton. In fact, the parade has become so popular that the Parade Organizers have extended the route past Swinton to West 5th Avenue.

Be sure to head out early to get a good viewing spot! Participating in the parade will be Honor Guards and Emergency Services Personnel from different areas.

And because it’s the 50th Anniversary, the surviving family members of the parade’s original founder, Maury Power (Power’s Lounge) will be up front and center just as Maury and his famous pig always were.

And once again, the South East Florida Honor Flight and the city of Delray Beach have invited WWII vets who will be accompanied and honored as they lead the parade.


And, while you’re in the area, it’s a good time to visit some of our local shops and restaurants along Atlantic Avenue.

HI Kathy Streib - Being half Irish, this is always a great time to celebrate spring and St. Patty's Day. It sounds like a special day in Delray Beach with the 50th Anniversary of parade founder Maury Power's family being honored at the front!

Ya know, I kind of like having a green beer or two but the parades can get a little too crazy for an old guy like me.

That's a lot of activities for what is known in my area as a day to get drunk at a local Irish pub, LOL. But hey, we all need our traditions. Whatever they may be.

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents in our youth, this day was spent chasing the fun and ended with beer, corned beef and cabbage somewhere. I've never really liked beer.

I had all but forgot that St. Patrick's Day is near.  However, I noticed yesterday that my local grocery store had put up a stand filled with Corned Beef Briskets and heads of cabbage.
