Just a few of the over 500 photos I shot today at the parade on Belmar
Ok here we go getting ready
I will be updating this post today
Coming from the north I would take Route 33East from the Garden State Parkway into Bradley Beach ocean Ave and then south to belmar , the parade route is all along Lake Como and Belmar the entire rout is one road Main Street! I marked the parade rout in green
Now if I was coming from Brick, Toms River area, I would make my way to Ocean ave in Spring Lake and head north to Belmar along Ocean ave. Ocean ave is your best rout and then take any of the avenues down to the parade route at Main street!

Belmar St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2017 information
Date: Sunday March 5th 2017
Parade time:12:30pm on March 5th 2017
Belmar Lake Como ST. Patrick’s day parade route information. The parade starts at the lake near Spring Lake in Lake Como and the parade rout is Main street till the end of Belmar. The parade ends at 5th ave in Belmar its well over a mile long.
How long is the parade, its usually over by 3pm 3:30pm ish depends on weather, everyone moves faster on a cold day!
There will be several visible security enhancements this year, roads will not open up as quickly as years past and roads will close earlier, they are placing security barriers, along the parade route to keep cars off main street, these concrete barrier will stop trafic from crossing over main street.
Parade street closure update: Closures of local streets will be different this year with additional streets closed and some closed off by 10 am. It is best to arrive early to reach the East side of the parade route. Updates will be posted as the committee becomes aware of them.
the best way to get east of main street coming from route 35 is to enter from Spring Lake or Avon, it will be very difficult or impossible to cross main street in Belmar after 10 am by vehicle on parade day.
