Everyone Is Irish at the Gaithersburg St. Patrick’s Day Parade
March 8, 2019
If you don’t have any plans for the St. Paddy’s Day weekend yet, start the celebrations early at the Gaithersburg St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 16th. Although it’s technically a day before the holiday, you wouldn’t know that from the St. Patrick’s Day spirit that emanates from the celebration.
Local community groups and performers come together to create a colorful bash, streaming down the streets of Gaithersburg starting at 10 a.m. Find a good spot to catch the action at least a few minutes before the fun begins. Grand Marshal Gary Walker, a member of the local fire department, will lead the flood of parade participants. Meanwhile, Albie Dee of 94.7 The Drive and JP Flaim of 106.7 The Fan emcee the event. Stick around after the parade to enjoy live music until 2 p.m.
