Thousands are expected to attend the 29th annual Ocean Count Saint Patrick's Day Parade. This year's focus will be on celebrating the shore, and rebuilding stronger and better.

The devastation caused by the October storm has impacted everyone in the community in some way or another.

The parade has traditionally been the kick off for tourism at the Jersey Shore each year.

The St. Patrick's Day Parade will help raise money and charitable contributions to support the rebuilding efforts for the entire region. The parade committee is also selling a lapel pin as a fundraiser at $10.00 each.

Parade Chairman Dennis Kelly said, "The parade not only honors the memory of Saint Patrick, but Irish culture and heritage as well. Be sure to get there early and secure your place!"
