Every year's St Patrick's Parade seems to have it's own personality. Past year's entries include Washington County Sheriff's armored truck, a variety of floats from schools and local businesses, car clubs and a motorcycle drill team. Royalty have graced the parade from Miss Teen Rodeo, Clark County, Columbia County, Tillamook County, Yamhill County Rodeo Courts as well as Woodland's Planter Days Court. Washington County Sheriff's Mounted Posse always act as Color Guard. Even "Everybody's Friend" Ronald McDonald has joined in the celebration!
The parades more than 40-year history began as a partnership with KUIK, our local radio station. The original parade route was on TV hwy starting at the parking lot of Bimart on the east end of Hillsboro and ending in the parking lot of what is now Winco on the west end of Hillsboro. That was twice as long as the current parade route. Mary & Kathy, daughters of Murphy Furniture founder Ruth Murphy, consider this community event a privilege to present.
The celebration will kick off with staging beginning at 9am in the parking lot across from Hare Field, on NE Grant Street in Hillsboro. The parade starts at 11am at Hare Field. The parade route heads east to Cornell Road, South on Cornell Road to Main Street, West on Main to 2nd Ave, North on 2nd to Grant Street, and East on Grant back to Hare Field.
The party will continue with the Corned Beef and Cabbage Feed in the Hillsboro Civic Center Plaza, sponsored by Sports Look. Its staff volunteers their time to provide this authentic (and tasty) traditional Irish meal. In recent years Sports Look has expanded it's community involvement through events like this. Find out more about Sports Look at WWW.SPORTSLOOK.COM.
The Hillsboro Boys & Girls Club will host games for the kids. These activities will take place in the Hillsboro Civic Center Plaza between 1st and 2nd on Main in downtown Hillsboro. Plan on hundreds of smiling faces & spirited dancing. There is still time to be in the parade. Get together the family & friends and put together your own spectacle. Entry forms are available at Hillsboro and Forest Grove Chamber offices or at Murphy's Furniture in Cornelius. 100% of the $20 entry fee will go to the Hillsboro Boys and Girls Club. Murphy's believe it's important to provide the parade as a symbol of the hope brought with spring.
