Hibernia Marching Society St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Now that the carnival season is over, it’s time to start looking toward the next party: St. Patrick’s Day. That’s exactly what the Hibernia Marching Band Society is doing.
This year’s grand marshal is state Representative Scott Delano and the Coleen is Alexandra Waldron. This year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is set for Saturday, March 11th at 2 p.m.
President of the Hibernia Marching Society Mary McCusker tells News 25 there are a few changes to the parade route. “We are not starting in the same location. We have moved up the street to Bellman. We have taken over the Gruich Center and turned it green for this day. We will be having food there, compliments of Port City Café. The Ocean Springs Elks Lodge will be there also, serving drinks. This will be one heck of a day to come out.”
McCusker wants everyone to know that you don’t have to be Irish to participate in the fun.
