Sadly, the 13th St. Patrick’s Day Parade cannot take place this year. The logistics of the route, and compliance with Walton County permitting, coupled with the short time frame to get approval, proved to be too big a hill to climb.
However, great strides have been made for a bigger and better event in 2021. Plans have already begun for the parade, and after party festival. Anyone that donated to the fundraiser can contact me to request a refund. Monies left over will be put into escrow for next year. A not for profit is being formed for future events. Should anyone wish to be part of the planning board please contact me.
A huge thank you goes out to all that donated, shared, called, emailed and texted support. Further thanks go to WCSO Lt. Jordan, Dave Talley, Butler Elementary, Linda Richards, and Walton County staff who tried their outmost to make the event happen. So, save the date for 2021 — Saturday, March 13th for the biggest 13th St Patrick’s Parade and Festival ever ! Stay up to date at www.30aparade.com
