On Friday & Saturday, March 14 & 15th, 2014, Festival Management Group proudly continues its long standing association with the Delray Beach St. Patrick’s Parade and Festival. Festival Management Group kicks off the weekend long festivities with a two day Siamsa (Irish Variety Show) and Party, featuring Irish step dancing, traditional pipe & drum bands, Irish storytelling, tales of Celtic Mythology, food, beer, live music and ending with the Celtic tradition of the Circle of Lights. The Irish Siamsa is hosted by the Master Leprechaun Himself, the original Jack Ryan, the Bard of Belmar, Shanachie of the Irish Riviera and the Jersey Shore’s Storyteller extraordinaire. Professor Ryan is an encyclopedia of all things Irish and sure to educate and entertain. The Irish Siamsa takes place in Downtown Delray Beach at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts at the corner of Atlantic & Swinton Avenue. Festivities begin at 5:00 PM, Friday, March 14th and continue on through Saturday evening in conjunction with the Parade. This year, Code 3 Events is producing the Delray Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade and celebrates its 46th year, rejoicing in our Irish heritage and honoring the service of the International Firefighters. The 2014 parade draws Marching Pipe & Drum Bands from around the world. In past years, marching firefighter bands from Dublin, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Canada and Australia have joined the festivities and traditionally play at the Irish Siamsa and Party. Join one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the nation and pay tribute to the brave Firefighters across the globe.
