Bringing the Parade of Shamrocks Back to Bethlehem with Jayne Ann Recker

Celtic Cultural Alliance

Rick Weaver talks all things Parade of Shamrocks with Jayne Ann Recker, the Executive Director of the Celtic Cultural Alliance. They discuss the new partnership allowing the return of the parade, the excitement leading up to the weekend, and what the Celtic Cultural Alliance has planned for both Saturday and future events.

After five years without the locally-loved parade, Main Street Bethlehem will once again be covered in green and filled with the sounds of pipes and drums. The Parade of Shamrocks returns this Saturday, March 16, with step-off at 1 PM.
