The programme will include the city’s first parade for the national holiday since 2019.

Alterations made to the traditional route back then will remain in place for 2022, with participants marching from University Road, over the Salmon Weir Bridge, to Eglinton Street and Eyre Square.

The Council also plans to run an outdoor village, with vintage amusements and family activities, for the duration of the long weekend.
