The Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh of the Jersey Shore will host the final fundraiser for the upcoming Belmar/Lake Como St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sun, February 24.
The event is from 2 to 6 p.m. at its Belmar home at 815 16th Avenue. It will feature a hot and cold buffet, complimentary drink, live entertainment, as well the traditional playing of the pipes and drums — all for a $15 donation to support the parade.
Proceeds raised will help cover the cost of the March 3 parade. The parade has grown into one of the largest and best attended parades in New Jersey with nearly 6,000 marchers, more than 40 bands and some 200,000 spectators.
