(WKBW release) The annual Jamestown St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Celebration will be held on Saturday, March 10 in downtown. 

This year’s parade Grand Marshal will be John Williams. 

The 8th Annual St. Patrick’s Day parade will begin at 12:00pm and travel East on Fourth Street and South on Main Street to Brooklyn Square.  Line up will begin promptly at 11:00am around Baker Park.  Registration forms are now available at www.discoverjamestown.com or call 664-2477, ext 224 to sign up. Participation is free and everyone is welcome.

Following the parade, parade-goers can line up along the Riverwalk and be amazed when Jamestown’s famous leprechaun magically turns the Chadakoin River green. 

Family-friendly activities and refreshments will take place in the Jamestown Area Medical Associates parking lot in Brooklyn Square from 12-2pm.  There will be trackless train rides and horse-drawn wagon rides for $1 donation. The Jamestown Area Chamber of Commerce will be distributing cookies and coffee.  DJDC invite children ages 4-12 years old to participate in the 5th Annual Shamrock Hunt, sponsored by Barmore Sellstrom and EMF Fintech.  Three age groups, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12, will compete to find the lucky shamrock in a pile of sawdust. Winners from each age group will receive a grand prize.  Hot dogs will be available for purchase along with other refreshments.

“We invite everyone to come downtown and help us celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The family-friendly activities have become a major hit with the celebration and we encourage everyone to stay and enjoy them,” said Ashley Anderson, DJDC Special Events Coordinator.
