The 132nd Atlanta St. Patrick’s Parade will be Saturday, March 15th, 2014
Tens of thousands of Atlanta residents and visitors flocked to
downtown Atlanta Saturday, March 16, for the
131st Atlanta St. Patrick’s Parade.
The festivities kicked off at 11:45a.m., with a special pre-parade performance by local Irish Dance Groups and vocalist Reed Ferguson. The performance will took place on Peachtree Street at John Portman Boulevard – directly in front of the VIP Reviewing Stand.
At noon, the parade officially stepped off at the intersection of Peachtree Street and Ivan Allen Boulevard and made its way down Peachtree to Marietta Street.
The 2013 parade features more than 2,000 dancers, musicians and Irish enthusiasts, as well as the return of parade balloons, floats, marching bands and one of the world’s largest Irish walking flags.
The 2013 Atlanta St. Patrick’s Parade grand marshal was Mr. Eamon Gilmore, Deputy Prime Minister of Ireland. Atlanta St. Patrick’s Parade organizers were thrilled that Deputy Prime Minister Gilmore has chosen to participate in our event on our special day.
