This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Brookside St. Patrick's Day Warm-up Parade. Join us to celebrate 40 Years of Brookside Luck, Saturday, March 16th at 2PM, in the historic Brookside Shopping District.
The annual Brookside parade takes the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day and kicks off a spirit-filled week celebrating St. Patrick's Day. The Brookside Business Association and the Brookside Community Improvement District sponsor the annual event which draws more than 100 organizations from around the metro representing groups and families of all ages. The fun, family-oriented event brings families, friends and neighbors together and is like an annual homecoming for many. Parade entries march, dance, walk and ride in a variety of vehicles from vintage fire trucks and classic cars, to floats and ornately decorated bikes, scooters and strollers. Whether you like bagpipes and Irish dancing, bands and drill teams, kids or dogs, the entrants, music and other festivities are sure to entertain all ages. It’s a once-a-year, one-of-a-kind event that you definitely don’t want to miss! So grab your green and come celebrate 40 Years of Luck at the 2020 Brookside St. Patrick's Day Warm-Up Parade
