Saint Patrick’s Day Parade & Potato Race

March 17 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Easton’s Downtown St. Patrick’s Day Parade celebrates community pride with Irish style! The celebration begins with a St. Patrick’s themed parade and culminate in the world-famous potato race. Come downtown and watch a fun lineup of carts and marching bands liven up the streets!

The potato race will kick off directly following the parade, and the start/finish line will be directly in front of the Talbot County Courthouse. This 4-person relay race will test the abilities of competing teams as they attempt to balance a potato on a spoon in a mad dash to the finish line. The winning team will receive the trophy, and there will also be a prize for best team spirit.

For groups interested in participating in the parade and/or the potato race, please visit www.EastonDowntown.com under events for more information.
