The Seventeenth Annual
The 17th annual Carbon County St. Patrick's Day Parade, sponsored by the Ancient Order of Hibernians Alec Campbell Division 1 of Carbon County and the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians Mollie Maguire Division 1 of Carbon County, will take place along Broadway in Jim Thorpe starting at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 9, 2014.
The event will be held rain or shine. Please note Sunday, March 9th is Daylight Savings- Spring Ahead!
In addition to honoring St Patrick, this parade has become a huge draw for the residents of Carbon County to celebrate their Irish heritage and reunite with loved ones and old friends. The parade will follow the same route as in past years - starting at the upper end of West Broadway and ending at the County parking lot, a downhill route that showcases the natural scenic beauty and unique history of Carbon County.
The members of the parade committee would like to remind spectators and those attending private parties along the parade route to respect the parade by not interfering with the parade or any of its participants.
Do your part! The money needed to host this parade is generously donated by our sponsors. You can show your support for the parade by becoming a sponsor, patronizing the businesses of our sponsors, or purchasing our T shirt to wear proudly on parade day.
