This year marks a massive anniversary celebration as it is the 50th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade of Delray Beach is a spectacle you won’t want to miss. Led majestically by 70 World War II veterans and the South East Florida Honor Flight, the parade takes the streets by storm. The vets while be escorted by uniformed Firefighters and Police Officers from all over the United States, and beyond. Local singing artist Sarah Crane, from the HOW foundation, will sign our national anthem, as the veterans and first responders stop in front of Northern Trust bank. This is one of the best places to be in all of South Florida for a great St. Patricks Day celebration!
