Limerick's St. Patrick's Festival will include the giant St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday 17th March and on the following day the 42nd International Band Championship will take place.
The St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 17th looks set to once again be the largest parade in the country outside of Dublin with a huge number of colourful entries as well as hundreds of musicians, dancers and entertainers.
70,000 spectators thronged the streets of Limerick last year for the St Patrick’s Day parade and the 2012 festival promises to be ever bigger!
On Sunday March 18th, the Limerick International Band Championship will celebrate its 42nd anniversary and over 800 musicians will converge in Limerick for the party!
