Place: Meet at the corner of 4th Ave and James Street in downtown Seattle near City Hall.
There is construction nearby so please plan ahead to arrive on time and be patient for the parade to start. I am bringing a banner and a blue CCAP umbrella so you can spot me.
We are part of the Leinster Division in the Order of the March between the Washington Diamonds Drill Team and the Denny International Middle School Marching Band if there is a crowd formed when you arrive. Please be on time so we can find each other before the start and march together.
At 12:20 pm, the Irish flag is raised in front of the King County Administration Building, followed by trumpeters playing the Irish and US National Anthems. Then at 12:30 pm, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Grand Marshals and the Honorary Parade Grand Marshal lead Seattle’s 46th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade up 4th Avenue, traveling north from James to the reviewing stand at Westlake Park. From there participants are invited to travel for free via the Monorail to the Seattle Center for closing ceremonies at the Irish Festival in the Armory at 2:30 pm.
