We Love a Parade

St. Patrick’s Day is approaching and Irish or not, it’s hard to resist a parade. Homemade floats. Bagpipes. Drums. Dancing. What a great way to celebrate the coming spring!

Here’s where your team can find a parade this weekend:

Bath
Downtown
Saturday, March 11
11 a.m.

What we love: The Bath Middle School Marching Band. And of course, Bath’s parade is the biggest in the state. Plus, more fun throughout the day, including a children’s story hour at The Bath Book Shop plus an Irish soda bread baking contest at Now You’re Cooking (yum).

Portland
Commercial Street
(beginning at the Portland Fish Pier and ending at the Maine State Pier)
Sunday, March 12
Noon

The Stillson Irish Step Dancers

What we love: After the parade, there will be Irish folk music and dancing at the Maine State Pier. Then take the family for a traditional bite to eat and more merriment at Brian Boru, Ri Ra or Bull Feeney’s.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!
