Our 2010 St Patrick’s Day celebrations in Belfast on 17 March will offer a colourful carnival atmosphere for the whole family to enjoy!
The carnival procession, featuring hundreds of participants from all corners of Belfast, will leave Belfast City Hall at 12 noon, move down Chichester Street, then into Victoria Street and from there to Custom House Square.
The carnival parade, with the theme of Spring, will feature the biggest springtime bouquets ever seen in Belfast, surrounded by huge exotic butterflies!
