For many years Boynton Beach Firefighters Benevolent and the members of IAFF Local 1891 are pleased to be an intricate part of the Delray Beach Saint Patrick’s Day Parade by escorting disabled veterans along the parade route as well as having our 1924 REO Speed Wagon Fire Truck on display.
This years parade marks the 50th year which is an annual hometown tradition that began in 1968 with an Irish local pub owner by the name of Maury Power, who took a stroll down Atlantic Avenue with his Shillelagh and a green pig and declared it “My own parade.”
The parade is run by a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, Code 3 Events, Inc., and has over 30 other nonprofit groups and organizations showcased in the parade. The parade highlights our local nonprofits; businesses, schools, civic organizations, veterans; Emergency Service personnel including police officers, firefighters, and EMS from all across the United States, and as far away as Belgium, Ireland, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, and France.
