Waterford’s Businesses, community, sporting, and voluntary groups are being asked to showcase their Passion for Our Planet as part of this year’s St Patrick’s Festival. We are encouraging them to be as creative and imaginative as possible in interpreting the theme through costumes, floats and performance.
The Mayor of City and County of Waterford, Councillor John Pratt, is leading planning for the event. He said, “We have entered a new decade, the decade that will decide whether or not we as global society can combat climate change”. Mayor Pratt also said, “I hope that all the parade participants will embrace the theme in creative and innovative waves to create a spectacle on the streets of Ireland’s Oldest City”.
The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is one of Waterford’s great community gatherings with hundreds of participants from all walks of life and it attracts in excess of twenty-thousand spectators. It will proceed from the Glen, along The Quay, Mall and Parnell Street where it concludes.
Already embracing this years theme are a group of young climate activists pictured with Mayor Pratt. The group met with Mayor Pratt and members of Waterford City And County Council in relation to climate change. A spokesperson said “We are delighted that Waterford City and County Council are putting the planet to the forefront this St. Patrick’s Day and we look forward to engaging with the festivities”.
Parade registration is now open. Groups and organisations interested in participating can register at http://bit.ly/StPatsParade2020
