St. Paddy’s Parade moves date to 4th Saturday of March

Metro

Organizers of the annual St. Paddy’s parade are reinforcing a bit of luck of the Irish by way of a date change.

The parade will move to the fourth Saturday in March which is March 23rd. Parade Co-Founder Malcolm White says they are trying to accommodate people who are traditionally out of town for spring break. The move should help ensure big crowds and record participation

The Magical Mystery Tour themed parade will also act as a reunion of sorts.The girls are back in town! And by that, we mean the Sweet Potato Queens are returning.

Parade participants will march to raise money for their perennial beneficiary, Batson’s Children’s Hospital.
