Hi all, this Sunday is the St Patrick Day Parade. There will be lots of songs and dance and beer to go around. Do come down and join in the fun. Some pics from last year's event from flickr.
This March 15th, 2009, the Third Singapore St Patrick's Day Parade and the first ever in SE Asia, will take place along an expanded route on Boat Quay.
Route : Mustering next to the New Parliament House, with its head at Q Bar, the route takes the marchers past the Raffles Statue, in front of the Asian Civilisations Museum, across Cavenagh Bridge, passing the Fullerton Hotel on the left, and then turning down Battery Road to enter UOB Plaza from the street, up its traffic ramp. The marchers will spread out over UOB Plaza, and the Promenade, while several bands will accompany the event.
The Parade is expected to draw over a thousand marchers, and highlights of the Parade will include
Singapore Police Force Band and Ladies Pipe and drum band
St Joseph’s Institution Pipes and Drums
St Patrick’s School Band
Star Wars group
Local and international schools
Irish organisations in Singapore
