IF your club or organisation wants to take part in this year’s Tralee St Patrick’s Day parade, you better get moving as the deadline for entries is this Friday, March 3.
The event is always a great opportunity to show the amazing community spirit we have in Tralee and with this year’s theme being ‘A Celebration of Tralee Sport’, you can be sure there’ll be plenty of participants. The deadline is March 3.
Tralee basketball legend, Rick Leonard is the Grand Marshal for the Parade and local community groups and organisations, as well as clubs, schools and businesses are invited to take part in what is always a fantastic day of celebration and entertainment.
The parade, which also marks the end of the year-long Tralee 800th celebrations, will get underway at 12pm sharp on Friday March 17, and will travel from John Joe Sheehy Road through Boherbee, onto Castle Street before finishing on Denny Street.
Once all the applications have been received, each participant will be given a slot number and the numbers will be displayed along the assembly area at the starting line on John Joe Sheehy Road.
Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories on the day – Most Colourful, Most Entertaining and Most Topical.
St Patrick’s Day Application forms are available from: Tralee Chamber Alliance, 18 Denny Street, Tralee as well as www.Tralee.ie and the Kerry County Council Offices in Princes Quay and Rathass, The Abbey Inn and the Tralee St Patrick’s Day Facebook Page.
