An Important Update on the Ocean County, NJ St. Patrick’s Day Parade
It's been quite a long time since the green line was painted on the Boulevard in Seaside Heights.
The Ocean County St. Patrick's Day Parade is a hugely popular event that draws thousands.
Anticipation for the event was high due to the fact that COVID had forced the parade to be called off for the past two years. It's crazy that it's been that long.
It feels like just yesterday that I was hosting the parade after-party at Spicy's. At the time rumbles of COVID were being heard.
I distinctly remember one person wearing a mask at the event. I thought to myself "somebody is being a little over-cautious."
Little did I know that in the week following the parade that the state shut down and our lives would change forever.
On the official parade website, the countdown clock continues to wind down.
It currently says:
Unless there is torrential rain or a blizzard, the parade will kick off at noon.
Wednesday evening, the Seaside Heights, NJ Facebook page posted the following announcement.
Regrettably, Saturday's St. Patrick's Day Parade has been canceled due to severe weather expected Saturday. There are no plans for a postponement at this time. Watch this Facebook page, or these websites for updates: www.ocstpatricksdayparade.com/ or exit82.com
Please do not telephone the Borough of Seaside Heights, the Seaside Heights Business Improvement District, or the Parade Committee as this is all of the information that is available.
