SEASIDE HEIGHTS - Preparations for the 30th annual Ocean County St. Patrick's Day Parade are underway in Seaside Heights.

The Boulevard has been graced with a green line painted down the middle.

Organizers expect 10,000 to 15,000 people, and businesses say they are excited to welcome the large crowd.

The Motel Hershey has two buildings completely booked. "We have people on lists, so with weather predictions tomorrow, looks like everything is going to go really well," says John McGrath.

Bars along the Boulevard are also stocking up for the parade, which is one of their busiest days of the year.
