Naples St. Patrick’s Day Parade
March 9, 2023
THE NAPLES ST. PATRICK FOUNDATION, INC. 501 ©3
P.O. Box 326, 539 Fifth Avenue S., Naples, FL 34102 will proudly be sponsoring The Parade this year on Saturday, March 11, 2023, beginning at 11 am in downtown Naples. The Parade is now the largest privately funded Parade in the State.
This year Lou Holtz, the legendary football coach at Notre Dame, will be the Grand Marshal of this year’s Parade. Holtz is scheduled to speak at the Flag Raising Ceremony held at the Naples Dock at Crayton Cove at 9:30 am. This traditional and moving program honors our veterans and public safety personnel. Join us for coffee and Danish courtesy of Dan Groom owner of The Dock Restaurant.
In 2010 we became a 501 ©3 non-profit Foundation in an effort to better serve the community. Since that time, we have given over $200,000 in scholarships to Champions for Learning, a mentoring and scholarship program that provides students from low-income homes with two-year tuition scholarships to Florida State Colleges or post-school technical training and have awarded grants every year to each of the high school bands that march in The Parade so that their music programs will continue to improve.
The Foundation Board and Committee members dedicate many hours to making the parade a happy day for the thousands of spectators who watch it.
