"I come down here each year for this, I love this parade," said Amy DeSotto of Virginia Beach. There were 120 entries in the parade this year. Don't forget, the festival happens right after the parade and ends at 4 p.m. The festival takes place on Main Street between Hillside Drive and will include 125 vendors selling arts & crafts, food and beverages. Irish music, dance and performances, as well as a treasure hunt, will be held throughout the day at various locations throughout the festival. You can see the times here.
