RE: Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, Saturday, March 16, 2019

Line up at 60th Street


Dear Parade Participants: Boumi Temple

With your help our annual parade has grown to be the second largest Saint Patrick’s Day parade in Maryland. For Ocean City, it has become to be the “kick off start” for our Spring season. The crowds have been unbelievable and a welcome change from a slow winter.

This year we are proud to announce that once again the event will be televised live by WRDE-WBOC. They will also re-run the broadcast on St. Patrick’s Day.

We need to bring a couple of things to your attention and ask for your cooperation;

  • If you plan to distribute anything along the parade route, please make sure you have your enough help to walk alongside your entry and distribute your handouts. The Ocean City Police Department has asked that we pass this request along to all participants.
  • Based on the success of our parade, traffic congestion will be inevitable, you should plan to arrive early and reach your line up position well in advance of the noon start. Please plan to arrive by 10 AM.
  • Please keep up with the entrant in front of you throughout the parade route. Use the right hash mark as your center.
  • As you know our parade starts promptly at 12 Noon, so we ask that you arrive early at your designated street and follow directions from the parade marshal as to your line up position. He will be controlling the entries onto the highway. It is important that you are in your proper position so the judges and parade announcer will have the information needed to give you recognition.
  • 45th. Street Shopping Center Festival Area – There will be no entry into the shopping center for the parade entries. Space just does not allow it. Proceed past the judge’s stand and disband no sooner than 42nd. street or even on to the Convention Center parking lot.

It’s going to be a great parade and a tremendous kickoff for our Ocean City Season.

Thanks,

Buck Mann and the Parade Committee
