Mark your calendars, get your green on and gather your friends! The 9th annual Cape Cod St. Patrick’s Parade will take place on Saturday, March 8 at 11 AM in Yarmouth. Now one of the largest and most anticipated offseason occasions on the Cape, the parade drew thousands of spectators from all over the country last year.
In keeping with tradition, the Colleen Queen and her court will be coronated and ride in a special float. The four winners will also receive college scholarships from the Cape Cod St. Patrick’s Parade committee.
Celebrity angler and TV host Charlie Moore, also known as “the Mad Fisherman”, will serve as Grand Marshal. One of country’s most well-known anglers, Moore hosts Charlie Moore Outdoors on NESN and Charlie Moore: No Offense on the NBC Sports Network.
For those who would like to meet Moore, there are a limited number of tickets available for the annual Grand Marshal’s Dinner/Dance. It will take place at the Irish Village in Yarmouth on Friday, March 7 at 6 PM. Tickets are $30 and include a choice of Corned Beef & Cabbage or Broiled Scrod, a cash bar, live music, an awards presentation and the Coronation of the Colleens. Call (508) 362-PADY (7239) for tickets.
Parade goers should also note that this year’s parade will take a slightly different route than in years past. The 2014 parade will begin at Bass River Sports World at the intersection of Long Pond Drive and Route 28 in South Yarmouth and follow Route 28 west over the Parker’s River Bridge. The approximately two mile route will end at the Town ‘N Country Motor Lodge, 452 Route 28, West Yarmouth. Organizers have re-routed the parade to take advantage of the increased number of amenities available to parade goers.
