The countdown is on for the annual St.Patrick’s Day parade on the Orihuela Costa, based at Cabo Roig. Friday March 17th will see the second-biggest celebratory St. Patrick’s parade in Europe, after Dublin, with around 10 thousand people expected to enjoy the fun and games.
The entertainment will start just after noon, with TKO FM providing music and entertainment throughout the afternoon. The parade proper will get underway shortly after 3.00pm, lead off by a procession of classic cars and motorbikes, prior to St. Patrick himself leading off the parade followed by the Grand Marshal, local politicians, organisers and dignitaries.
Following them will be the parade proper, with floats from many of the local pubs and business, dance schools, local clubs and associations, all providing entertainment for the spectators along the entire Cabo Roig Strip.
