In collaboration with the Hibernians of Hollywood & the Community Redevelopment Agency, the City of Hollywood has announced the St. Patrick's Day Parade & Festival in downtown Hollywood has officially been cancelled.
The decision to cancel the event was made out of an abundance of caution due to the COVID-19 outbreak as well as the state of emergency declared by Broward County today.
Downtown Hollywood will be transformed into a sea of green on for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival. This annual event features a traditional float parade beginning at 1:00 p.m. An array of floats, pipe and drums corps, marching bands and business entries participate in the parade along with the famous New York Police Department Emerald Society Pipe and Drum Corps. The parade route will wind its way through Downtown beginning at Harrison Street and 21st Avenue, continuing north to Hollywood Boulevard, east to Young Circle south to westbound Harrison Street returning to 21st Avenue. Wear your green and be prepared for the excitement of the day as you plan to arrive early for the best viewing locations along the parade route. Musical performances will continue on the main stage following the parade.
