Brookside St. Patrick's Warm-Up Parade
The annual Brookside St. Patrick’s Warm-Up Parade is a fun, family-oriented event occurring the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day. The parade draws participants and spectators from around the metro and kicks off a spirit-filled week in Kansas City celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Hosted in the heart of the historic Brookside Shops and the surrounding neighborhood, the parade is sponsored by the Brookside Business Association and Community Improvement District. Over 100 organizations and businesses from across the metro enter the parade each year. Whether marching, dancing, walking or riding vehicles ranging from red wagons and bikes to floats and classic cars, the entrants, music and other festivities are sure to entertain groups and families of all ages. Entries include bands, drill teams, Irish dancers, bagpipers, the mounted patrol, and dogs of all shapes and sizes including Basset Hounds, Great Danes and of course, Irish Setters. It’s a one-of-a-kind event that you don’t want to miss!
