Old Sacramento St. Patrick’s Day Parade

by

Since we are already looking forward to the weekend (see yesterday’s post) lets stick with it all week. With St. Patrick’s Day coming next Wednesday you will definitely want to begin celebrating early at the 14th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Old Sacramento.

Bagpipes, drum corps, Irish step dancers, costumed marchers, and festive pageantry, bring the luck of the Irish to parade watchers during Sacramento’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Over a decade in existence, the parade has become a celebrated tradition filling the streets of Old Sacramento with over 500 costumed marchers, military regiments, marching bands, uniformed police and fire professionals, cultural organizations and much more.

The hour-long parade begins promptly at 1PM at 2nd and L Streets  and proceeds throughout the historic district of Old Sacramento. This is a family friendly event appropriate for all ages (no alcoholic beverages will be served.) During the evening many restaurants will offer Irish menus or specialties, and adults who prefer a Guinness with their meal will be able to enjoy one with their meal at restaurants throughout Old Sac.

The festivities run from 12-6PM on Saturday, March 13th and for more information click here or call 916.558.3912.

We’ll see you there!
