The committee of the Darling Downs Irish Club (DDIC) invites your participation in Toowoomba’s annual St Patricks Day Parade, 2023.
Each year we hold a parade the weekend prior to the 17th, the actual celebration day, and we are keen to increase community involvement in our special event. This year the parade will be held on Sunday 12th March, meeting at 10am for a 10:30 start.
We proceed from the Irish Club hotel at the Station Street entrance, and do a square loop up Margaret, Ruthven and Russell streets (about 1.5km usually). Everyone is welcome to walk in the parade, and you can participate in a range of different ways; it maybe a group of walkers dressed in green or other Irish regalia, or a presence in the capacity of a float or display – Be creative! St Patrick himself will lead the parade.
Anyone wishing to enter a vehicle in the parade needs to have the vehicle and driver approved in advance by the parade organisers (Darling Downs Irish Club) and must conform to the TRC and Police guidelines.
If you are interested in taking part, please send an email indicating your interest and proposed presence in the parade (we are required to provide details of participants to the Council for approval).
