For more than twenty years, the annual Delvin Parade has entertained the crowds with larger than life characters, hilarious sketches, marching bands, displays of incredible skill and the best of local talent. 

Having been snowed off in 2018, the Parade returned refreshed and bolder than ever in 2019 with a new committee at the helm and a host of floats.  Guest of honour was Anna May McHugh - Managing Director of the National Ploughing Association.

What will 2020 bring? Find out on Sunday 15th March!
