The 31st Annual Springfield St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be here before we know it. It will be held this year on Saturday, March 19, 2011, and will be covering the old traditional parade route.
The Grand Marshall has not been named for the parade yet, but that should be coming soon, as the local planning committee has already put out a request for float entries. We want to list the schedule of events now, though, so you can start planning for the event.
12:00 Food booths & vendors open at the Jefferson Avenue Footbridge. Parade units begin forming (Benton & Commercial)
2:00 Parade begins with Grand Marshal
4:30 – ???? Celebration continues with the Awards Ceremony at Patton Alley Pub
