Ocean View St. Patrick’s Day parade makes its long-awaited return
After a four-year hiatus, the Ocean View St. Patrick’s Day parade is back this Saturday.
The annual parade was last held in 2019. 2020’s parade was canceled just days before it was scheduled as Coronavirus cases surged worldwide. Festivities weren't held in 2021 because of continuing COVID risks, and 2022's parade was rained out before it even began.
Saturday’s parade will start at 10 a-m at the corner of Granby and Westmont. The parade route is 1.5 miles, ending at the intersection of First View and Government Avenue.
Police will close off Granby Street starting at 7:30 a.m.
All streets will reopen by 1:30 p.m.
