As part of ‘The Gathering Ireland 2013’ for the first time ever, St. Patrick’s Festival are inviting up to 8,000 people around the world to march in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin on 17 March 2013 - The People’s Parade is a once in a lifetime opportunity and applications are now open!
As a participant in The People’s Parade you will march in procession through the streets of Dublin, passing many historic landmarks along the way including the GPO, Trinity College, Dublin Castle and City Hall. You will soak up the vibrant atmosphere; feel the energy, wave to the audience along the 2.5km route and best of all once you have finished you can marvel at the spectacular performance section of the parade that follows.
Build lifelong memories, display your Irish pride, celebrate all that is good about Ireland and being Irish (even if you are just an honorary Irish person for one day!) and savour your unique journey through the heart of Dublin City- the journey of a lifetime!
The Parade will start from Parnell Square, Dublin 1.
St. Patrick’s Festival 2013 takes place from Thursday 14th to Monday 18th March, we hope to see you there!
