One of my favorite events of the year is the St. Patty's Day Parade in Seaside Heights. It is a great day of hanging out with friends, watching the parade, and then doing some old-fashioned bar-hopping!

I know the parade isn't until March, but it's a HUGE parade! A lot of planning goes into it ahead of time. To put on a parade this size also costs money...

So....On Saturday, September 30th, the Ocean County St. Patrick’s Day Committee is holding their “Shamrocks By The Sea” Irish Festival at the Seaside Park "Marina Lawn" located at J street in Seaside Park starting at 10 am to raise money for the parade on March 10th of 2018.

Basically, it's another party! There will be beer, food, vendors, Irish Step Dancers, Bagpipe Bands, and more, to raise money for the 2018 Ocean County St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Seaside Heights.

There will also be live music from Bally Haunis, an awesome Irish-American Band.
