Getting to Pierce’s Park– If you live in Federal Hill, Ridgley’s Delight, Fells Point, Little Italy, Harbor East, etc. we highly recommend walking!

Strollers -Due to the number of attendees expected to attend, strollers will NOT be allowed on the grass. However, we will have a stroller valet area managed by Waterfront Partnership Guides. We recommend bringing a baby carrier for babies/younger toddlers.
The 58th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade –The parade will kick-off at 2 PM from the Washington Monument, travel down North Charles Street and then continue on to Pratt Street. Pierce’s Park is just a block and a half away from the end of the parade. Shamrock Shindig will end at 2pm to give you plenty of time to grab a spot for the parade. Last year my family and I watched the parade from Pratt Street (in front of Panera Bread) and it was a great spot! Some parents had small chairs for their kids, although most of the kids were up and dancing most of the time. For parade details, please visit www.irishparade.net.
We hope this information is helpful. We are looking forward to our first event in 2013! A big thank you to our sponsors Natty Boh and Guinness.
