Organizers of the 2023 Ocean County St. Patrick’s Day Parade say the show will go on rain or shine Saturday, despite a potentially foul forecast.

The parade was already postponed once – on March 11 – but the forecast for Saturday, April 1, its makeup date, had some questioning whether the parade would be held. A wind advisory is in effect, according to the National Weather Service, and there will be occasional rain and showers throughout the day.



The parade will go on ‘Rain or Shine,’ an anouncement on social media said, beginning at 12 noon on the Boulevard, from the Seaside Park border into Seaside Heights.
