Traffic advisory for the Upper Keys Irish Festival

The 23rd Annual Upper Keys Irish Festival and parade fundraiser will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 11, at the Caribbean Club, 104080 Overseas Highway.

The parade assembly will begin at 11:30 a.m. at 1st Court and Avenue B and will depart at noon en route to U.S. 1 and ultimately the Caribbean Club.

This is one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day events in the Upper Keys and traffic typically begins to slow in both directions as Mile Marker 103 nears.

Deputies will be controlling traffic on U.S. 1 to allow parade marchers to cross the highway.
