The Onancock St. Patrick’s Day parade is on for today.  Early morning rain is pushing out of the area and the forecast is for no rain and temperatures in the low 60s at parade time.

On Sunday, Onancock celebrates the 6th Annual O’Nancock St. Patrick’s Parade & Celtic Festival.  It’s a day of fun and family-friendly activities.

The Festival is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the grounds of Ker Place.  There will be a variety of vendors, Highland Games demonstrations, entertainment and refreshment sales.

The Parade starts at 2 p.m. on Market Street with the theme “Shamrocks & Shillelaghs.”  St. Patrick and his Color Guard, Pipe and Drum Corps, floats, and the characters Solar Sam, LED Lucy, Smoky Bear, and Darren the D.A.R.E. Lion will all be part of the parade.  Don’t miss the Kilt Contest – an annual favorite.
