SOUTH AMBOY — This year’s South Amboy St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be held on Saturday, March 10, and will step off at 2 p.m. This event is one of the city’s highlights each year.
The parade continues to be a success because of donations received from local businesses and corporations covering the cost of the numerous marching bands that participate every year. Along with the bands, there will be many floats and thousands of marchers.
After lining up along South Pine Avenue, marchers will turn right onto Bordentown Avenue, left onto South Stevens Avenue, right on Main Street, and right onto Broadway where they will finish up at the reviewing stage. In the event of rain, the parade will be postponed until March 24.
The South Amboy Parade Committee has announced that Rob McQuade and Ed O’Connor will be serving as grand marshal and deputy grand marshal respectively and Main Liquors owner Hershey Patel has been named the honorary grand marshal.
