The Parade will be starting from Church Road, (see map), we will be lining up from the Grotto where we will start the parade route. Groups/floats will be registered from 2.30 pm where an allocation number will be given to each group/float. Please note that there are residences on this road and we have to allow them access, so we are asking everyone to keep all children in their groups under supervision. There will be stewards and officials on the road along with Gardai. If you need help with anything please approach any of them. We are not stopping any groups /floats in front of the viewing stand this year except for the Marching Bands. We are trying every year to streamline and look at running the Parade as smoothly and as quickly as possible for the sake of children. We feel it's not fair on them as last year it was a very cold and wet parade.
Approach the Registration Area at the top of Church Road and St Patrick's Park from the Shackleton Road/Scoil Na Mainstreach end from 2pm. The bottom of Church Road and Clane Road will be closed to traffic except for residents. We ask parents dropping off children to follow these instructions for drop off.
The parade ends at Tesco Car Park as usual. The Parade will commence at 4pm. All roads around parade will be closed at 3.45. If anyone needs access to Celbridge they can approach from the M4 Motorway and still have access along the Shackleton Road to other areas of Celbridge between 3.45pm and 5.30pm, The Parade is one of the largest events Celbridge celebrates and we aim to keep it going.
PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE NO PERFORMING AT THE VIEWING STAND THIS YEAR.
