Celtic culture thrives on the Two River Peninsula through numerous Irish-themed community events, culminating in the Annual Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade where 4,000+ people gather to watch the parade along the 1.5-mile parade route through the heart of Rumson (beginning at Allen Street and finishing at Carton Street and Forrest Avenue). This year’s Parade benefits Stephy’s Place (http://stephysplace.org/sp/), A Support Center Grief and Loss that provides free support groups for anyone losing a loved one.
