St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Asbury Park 

The 7th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Asbury Park isn’t your average parade! Funded entirely by local businesses and community fundraising, it’s a massive celebration of the hard-working, community-oriented spirit of Asbury Park. The parade kicks off on Sunday, March 8 at 1:00 at 5th Avenue and Ocean Avenue. Along with the usual attractions you’d expect to see at a parade—marching bands, classic cars, etc.—the Asbury Park St. Patrick’s Day Parade features roller girls, award-winning mummers, zombies, and lots of other entertaining sights you won’t want to miss! The parade is free, open to the public and fun for the whole family!

Downtown Freehold Pub Crawl

End your St. Patrick’s Day festivities with the ultimate pub crawl! On Thursday, March 19 from 8:00 to 11:00, come to downtown Freehold to enjoy a night of drinking, live bagpipe music and merriment. The American Hotel, Federici’s, Court Jester and Metropolitan Cafe will all be hosting the crawl. You’ll be able to choose from a selection of great beer and scotch. Tickets for beer drinking are $20 per person and $40 per person for scotch. Have a great time with your friends and maybe even make some new ones! 

Caring with Karaoke 

If you want to support a great cause and enjoy a fun night of eating, drinking and karaoke at the same time, come to The Stone Pony on Wednesday, March 25 at 7:00 p.m. for the 13th Annual Caring with Karaoke event. A pre-ordered $25 ticket (or $30 at the door) gets you admission to the karaoke contest, light buffet and one drink. All proceeds from the event go to benefit Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA). CASA recruits and trains volunteers who advocate for abused and neglected children until they can be placed into safe, permanent and nurturing homes. This event supports a great cause, so please come show your support if you can!
