1st Annual St Patrick’s Day Parade

Spring is fast approaching and everyone loves a Parade.  That means it will soon be time for the First Bath St. Patrick’s Day Parade sponsored By Byrnes’ Irish Pub!  Main Street Bath cordially invites you to participate in Maine’s grandest St. Patrick’s Day parade on Saturday, March 14, 2009 at 11 AM.  This year’s theme is:

Celebrating the Shamrock!

Entries can reflect traditional Irish themes incorporating the famous clover grown only on the Emerald Isle and to celebrate the Irish History in Bath and the Great Holiday celebrating the Patron Saint of Ireland.

            The Parade will be limited to 50 entries, so please don’t delay!  There is a firm cut off date of March 12, 2009 – no entries after that date will be accepted.  We hope that you will join with us in making this the best quality Bath St. Patrick’s Day Parade ever held in Maine.  This is a new and exciting event for Bath and we hope it will be an annual event and the Biggest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the State of Maine.
