Marchers Wanted – For Sun March 5 – Belmar Parade

On Sunday March 5, Students of the Irish Language (Daltaí na Gaeilge) will be marching in the Belmar St. Patrick’s Day Parade. It’s the largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in NJ and you are invited to march with us! No knowledge of Irish is required just your smiling self.

Our goal is show the Irish-American community that the Irish language has a strong following and to gain support and recruit new students. But most of all we have a lot of fun!

If you interested here is the information:
The parade starts at 12 noon and finishes at approximately at 3:30 p.m. The Daltaí marchers will be meeting between 11 am – 12 noon at assembly point “B” which is on the north side of Lake Como between streets Fernwood and Ripley. The parade route is up Main Street starting at North Boulevard and ending at 5th Avenue.

Daltaí will be marching in position 31,
following the “Friendly Sons of St Patrick” the group behind us will be the “Belmar Elks Lodge 1997”.

DRESS WARMLY! Last year it was Very cold.

Parking is on the street. The earlier you arrive the easier it will be to find a spot. You may want to consider parking at the end of the parade route near 5th Avenue and walking down to North Boulevard, so when the parade is over you won’t have far to walk to your car.

General directions:
From Garden State Parkway – take exit 98
for Belmar. Follow signs for Route 138 East. Take 138 East into Belmar until you see signs for Route 35 North. Bear Left at fork onto Route 35. At first light make a Right onto 16th Street (also called F Street). Follow that into South Belmar and make a Left onto North Boulevard, just past 20th Street. Lake Como is on North Boulevard.
