Trend Motors has sponsored and participated in Morris County's St. Patrick's Day Parade for over a decade and we receive an incredible turnout every year!
The Grand Marshall of the Parade was John J. Murphy (pictured right).
The parade started around South Street and headed up to Morristown Green, ending at Atno Avenue.
In addition to Trend's convoy of convertibles and other Volkswagens and even our own float, there were about 20 bands with about 70,000 in attendance either in the parade or as spectators last year.
Mother Nature came through and provided clear skies for the 2018 St. Patrick's Day Parade, with pleasant temperatures and cool breezes. Overall, it was a great day to celebrate with the Irish and their friends as we recognized their contribution in building a great America.

Volkswagen's brand new Golf Alltrack also made an appearance along with several Trend vehicles for this special occasion.

"The Morristown Festival on the Green showcases the diversity and quality of our restaurants, wide range of retailers, hard work and outreach of our numerous nonprofit organizations and top-notch entertainment for all ages," added Karen Carvelli, director of development for the Morristown Partnership. The Trend Motors Team had a live DJ and gave away goodies and balloons, while guests were able to submit an entry guessing the number of balloons in our 2014 Beetle Convertible to be eligible to win a vacation getaway! Guests also had an opportunity to enter for a chance to win $50 gift certificates to the beautiful Highlawn Pavilion overlooking the New York Skyline.
