Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Gaithersburg
The city of Gaithersburg, in partnership with the Harp and Shamrock Society of Gaithersburg, the Peterson Companies, Rio Washingtonian Center, and 94.7 Fresh FM, will host the 14th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 15 at Rio Washingtonian Center (I-370 and Washingtonian Boulevard).
Dozens of units will march in the parade, including Celtic dancers, bagpipe bands, school groups, clowns, fire trucks, equestrian units, service organizations, and more. When the parade is over there will be live entertainment on the Lakefront Plaza until 1 p.m.
The Grand Marshals and Emcees for this year’s parade are Tommy McFly, Kelly Collis and Jen Richer of 94.7 Fresh FM’s “The Tommy Show.”
Community groups and other organizations are invited to march in the parade. This is a great way to be involved in the community and to get your group noticed. Please note that participation in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade by groups or organizations other than city of Gaithersburg officials, departments or committees does not constitute city of Gaithersburg endorsement.
