Got your Kilt and pint of Guinness ready to go? Today is the big day! It’s the 40th anniversary of the Belmar/Lake Como St. Patty’s Day Parade. Big Joe Henry will travel down Main Street in Belmar as part of the biggest Irish parade in New Jersey. Check back throughout the day to see all the action.



Nearing the end of the parade. We had such a great time today, check back here for the gallery of all the pictures from today’s parade.


Here we go, we are in the middle of the parade.


Kevin the Leprechaun stops by and plays a mighty tune.


We’re at the staging area now getting ready, decorating the Long Branch Trolley, and waiting for our cue to enter into the parade. There’s an estimated 125,000 people lining Main St. today and we can already hear the marching bands and bag pipes in the distance.


Big Joe checks in one last time and The Ocean County Emerald Society Pipes and Drums warm up for the parade.


Big Joe checks in with Christopher Knight as the Celtic Cottage is filling up with more and more people.


Here’s Big Joe’s Big Irish Breakfast. It’s a pre-parade tradition. Big Joe will check in soon with Christopher Knight as we celebrate and patiently wait to head over to the staging area of the parade.


Here’s the parade route for today.

Look for the Big Yellow Van and the Jersey Prize Team as they travel alongside Big Joe in the spirit of Irish tradition! The parade kicks off at 12:30, but if you can’t make it don’t worry, you can follow along right here as we will be adding pictures and video as the events unfold.

We’ll check in to see what’s going on at Big Joe’s Big Irish Breakfast, and ride along with the Long Branch Trolley and Big Yellow Van as they make their way down Main St. We’ll hear the Ocean County Emerald Society Pipes and Drums, and see everyone decked out in green, celebrating this great tradition. Check back here soon to see the action..
