The extremely popular Glenamaddy St. Patrick’s Day Parade makes a welcome return on March 17th and this year’s event will commence with a Children’s Tractor Run.

The festivities will begin at the earlier time of 12.30 pm this year and the Junior Tractor Run will lead the parade off from Glenamaddy Community Centre. All pedal-powered bikes, trikes, etc. are welcome to take part!

The tractor run will then proceed to the Square where participants will wait safely for the remainder of the parade to join them. They will even enjoy a few treats for all their hard work!

The parade is expected to attract a large crowd as local residents and businesses and visitors to the town turn Glenamaddy green once more.

All floats are welcome to take part on the day and there will be lots of cash prizes up for grabs for the best entries.

There will be live music in the Square as well as in local venues with special guests on the day.

The organisers are now calling on all local residents, community groups and villages to come out and take part and make this year’s Glenamaddy St. Patrick’s Day Parade bigger and better than ever before!
