Rules, Regulations & Useful Information to make the parade efficient and enjoyable

IT IS DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME SUNDAY MARCH 13, 2016 SO PLEASE SET YOUR CLOCKS AHEAD!

Enclosed please find the Line of March for the Philadelphia St. Patrick's Day Parade. Please read the rules and regulations and advise those in your groups. One person from each group must check in with one of the Marshals in your Division upon arrival, or you will not be announced at the reviewing stand or on TV.

Home land Security has requested driver and vehicle information that must be updated on your website application by Noon the Thursday before the parade. Quite simple, if they do not have the information they require, the vehicle will not be in the parade. There has been quite a bit of information emails about this, please make sure it is correctly filled out.

Do not schedule any after parade celebrations to start before 3:30 PM or more than likely you will be paying for dead time.

Insurance regulations require that all vehicles in the line of march have insurance cards taped to the dashboard on the driver side of the vehicles. Animals are NOT permitted in the Line of March.

Please copy the staging and bus pick up maps for the members of your groups and drivers. In the event of inclement weather, or an act of God, please listen to KYW-1060 AM Radio for information. I will also post on the website but I leave at 5:00 AM so I will do my best. There is NO rain date scheduled, so unless it is a blizzard, we go.

In honoring Saint Patrick, the patron Saint of Ireland, we ask for your patience and understanding. Please say a prayer for safety of all attending, good weather, and a successful entertaining parade.

The Philadelphia St. Patrick's Day Parade will be held on Sunday March 13, starting at 11:30 AM SHARP at 16th &JFK. There will be an air horn with 5 short blasts to signal 5 minutes to the start, and 1 long blast to signal the start of the Parade. The first 4 divisions please have your group ready to march at 11:30 AM. This letter offers final suggestions to make this parade successful.

FOX29 has assembled the winning team of Kathy Orr, Mike Jerrick and Bob Kelly, that is such an asset to the Irish Community. Check their website the day after the parade for Award Winners, information, and photos at Fox29 on the St Patrick's Day Parade link. Please tell them what a great job they do covering the parade! Our partnership with Fox29 has developed other improvements that you will further promote the parade.
