Think the luck of the Irish could be contained within the boundaries of St. Patrick's Day? Guess again! There is so much more to do in Saint Paul and the surrounding area you'll be Irish'ed out by the end of the weekend.
Join thousands in downtown Saint Paul on March 17, 2014 for the 48th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade at noon.
The parade stands as one of the longest running and most decorated St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the nation. Green attire and wacky costumes are the norm. In 1851, Saint Paul held the state’s first ever St. Patrick’s Day parade to celebrate Irish heritage. What started as an impromptu event changed shape in 1967 when Saint Paul’s Irish community gathered at a local bar to create the St. Patrick’s Association to organize and grow this tradition. Each year the downtown area is packed with people from all over to celebrate the day. [Event Website]
