Oregon Police Emerald Society Saint Patrick’s Day 2020 Trip


This year the OPES will be going to San Diego for a couple of reasons. 

San Diego is a warmer and a cheaper location. 

(Our 2021 Trip to NYC for the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 will be more expensive so we thought a cheaper trip this year would be better for those traveling with us.)

Location: San Diego, California

Dates:  Friday 13 March to Monday 16 March 2020

Parade: Saturday 14 March. We’ll be marching with the San Diego Law Enforcement Emerald Society. After the parade we are invited to a BBQ and then the Irish Festival in Balboa Park. There is also a Street party near the hotel that we can buy VIP tickets to. https://www.sandiegoshamrock.com

Uniforms: For the Parade our OPES Kilted Uniforms or your Department’s class A Uniform.

Flights: Differ depending which airline members select to fly

Hotel: Horton Grand Hotel, Gas Lamp District, San Diego, California
