“Twill be a grand time for all on Saturday, March 16 when the 13th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade takes the streets of Eastsound.

They are marching a day early this year because “we felt that with businesses open there will be more participation.”

The invitation is open to all: those who are Irish, who wish to be Irish or are grateful not to be Irish! Marchers, decorated vehicles and even floats are welcome. Costumes are heartily encouraged.

Participants will gather at Island Market parking lot at 11:30 a.m., and set off as soon as they are organized.

“Join us, to march or to cheer us on, and then off to the Lower for brews and singin’ the good auld songs,” say organizers.

For more information, call Mike Lawless at 376-4911.
