Plans well underway in Ballinasloe for their annual St.Patrick’s Day Parade
The Ballinasloe St.Patrick’s Day Parade will assemble at the Fairgreen car park, at 1.30p.m on Thursday 17th March and will begin at 2p.m. sharp.
The theme for this year’s parade is “Celebrating 1916 to 2016”. There will be lots of fun outdoor activities and street entertainment for spectators to enjoy on the day, including performances from local musicians and dancers on the gig rig in St. Michaels square.
Participants may choose from five categories including education, culture, sport, voluntary and commercial. There will be valuable cash prizes to be won in each category.
The organisers are appealing to the local business community to assist with sponsoring the cost of the parade. We acknowledge the support we have received from the Ballinasloe Vintners, who are this year’s main sponsors.
We encourage the local schools, sports clubs voluntary organisations and businesses to come along on the day and join in our parade and make it a lively day of commemoration and celebration. It also affords an opportunity to showcase the positives in our community
