Downtown Hermosa Beach
Back for its 27th year! Enjoy seeing some of your favorite local nonprofits, unique vehicles, cool brands and more in this eclectic and diverse celebration of St. Patrick's Day.
Pier Avenue and Hermosa Avenue will be closed early morning Saturday so that the parade route can be well established. The community is welcome to line up on the street. Parade participants are not allowed to throw or toss items from the route but can hand out content to parade attendees directly. Enjoy the parade near one of the three announcing stages to enjoy information about each parade entry.
Yes, the parade is still happening! We have been watching the weather for the last few days and as of right now there is a 33% chance of rain on Saturday morning.
Rafael McMaster, owner and founder of Indivisible Arts is the 2023 Grand Marshal of the Hermosa Beach St. Patrick's Day parade. Rafael was recently named "Person of the Year" in Hermosa Beach at the Best of Hermosa awards.
