SACRAMENTO, CA (January 13, 2010) ó Old Sacramento, a 28-acre historic landmark and state historic park, will hold itís 14th Annual St. Patrickís Day parade on Saturday, March 13, 2010.  New to this yearís event: a new date, a new time and a new parade route.  The 2010 event will also include a Celtic festival in Waterfront Park (1000 Front Street) from noon Ė 6:00 p.m. featuring Irish music, dancing, food and a green beer garden.  A number of vendors will be on hand to peddle their Celtic wares.

 

            Always a free event, the parade steps off from a new location (2nd & L Streets) promptly at 1:00 p.m. and proceeds throughout the historic district. 

 

            Over 60 units with more than 1,000 marchers will delight the Irish and Irish-at-heart.  Tartan clan Highlanders, bagpipers, Irish dancers in elaborate Celtic costumes, school bands, military regiments, police and fire representatives, costumed marchers and many other cultural organizations will bring the luck of the Irish to the event.

 

            The parade is a family-centered event that has become a celebrated tradition for over a decade.

 

            All Old Sacramento streets will be closed to traffic from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., as several thousand people are expected to line the streets and Gold-rush era wooden boardwalks to enjoy the festivities.   A reviewing stand will be located at the intersection of Front & K Streets. 

 

Presented by the Old Sacramento Business Association, the event is sponsored by Fanny Annís, Mix 96, KVMR and The Shamrock Club.
