The Grand Marshal for the 14th Annual Cape Cod St. Patrick’s Parade will be retired Yarmouth Police K9 Officer Peter B. McClelland, who will lead the parade. This year’s parade is in honor of Sgt. Sean Gannon and his K9 partner Nero, who together marched in last year’s parade.
The parade will begin at 11:00 AM on Saturday, March 9, 2019 and will travel along Route 28 in Yarmouth. The theme of this year’s parade is the “Spirit of the Community.”
Peter McClelland encompasses all aspects of this year’s theme for the parade. He worked for the Yarmouth Police Department for 30 years and most of those years were spent being a K9 dog handler. Mr. McClelland trained K9 Nero from the time he was a puppy and started training him with Yarmouth Police Officer Sean Gannon, who eventually took him full time.

The 2019 parade will mark our 14th anniversary, and from humble beginning to today, we have been blessed with growth, achievement and support. There are many people to thank, and first and foremost the parade committee would like to thank our corporate sponsors and every single small business that borrows from a pool of meager funds and gives to the parade to help ensure its success. We would like to thank the Town of Yarmouth for their support. The Tourism Preservation Fund has continued to support this effort to bring many spectators to the Mid-Cape area who, without this parade, may not find themselves on Cape Cod in March.
We would like to thank you, the spectators for continually spreading the word and inviting more and more spectators each year. You have proven to be a hardy bunch, braving the elements to help us celebrate our Irish heritage and the eventual arrival of spring.
