Good afternoon, this is Belmar Business Administrator Colleen Connolly with a Code Red announcement for the residents of Belmar and Lake Como.
The St. Patrick’s Parade is this Sunday, March 5th.
In order to secure and facilitate both the parade route and vehicle staging for the parade; The Belmar Police Department requires all vehicles removed from both sides of Main Street by 6am Sunday morning.
Additionally, all vehicles must be removed from both sides of 18th Avenue from Main Street to Ocean Avenue and from North End Blvd from Main Street to B Street by 6amSunday morning.
We do not want people to get ticketed and towed, please make sure all cars are off Main Street and 18th Avenue between Main Street and Ocean Avenue and North End Blvd between Main and B Street by 6am Sunday morning.
If you live east of Main Street and wish to leave town on Sunday between the hours of 6am and 4:30pm, it is best to proceed to Ocean Avenue and then leave through either Avon or Spring Lake. Main Street will be inaccessible for most of the day.
As always we thank you for your patience and cooperation with the large influx of people coming into town. Please be mindful of street closures and follow directions from the Belmar Police Department.
We hope you can join us for the parade and that you have a safe and happy weekend
