St Patrick’s hats wigs etc all encouraged.

FacePaint welcome, Irish flags and shamrocks.

Please dress appropriately for the weather.


VERY IMPORTANT

Each child taking part must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Quiet Area

Bray is an Autism Friendly town. In support of this, there will be a Quiet Zone along the St Patricks parade route (junction Quinsborough Road/Seymour Road, beside Bray Wanderers). Please notify all participants, we would ask that you don’t make loud noises or blow whistles along this section of the road.

Silly String

Silly string is banned on the Bray Streets due to the mess it makes and the cost of cleaning it up. It is also not safe to have it sprayed in the face, so the committee have put a ban on the use of Silly string, by participants in the parade and spectators. Please let all participants know so they don't bring any to the parade.
