St. Patrick’s Day Parade
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is back!
Plan to attend on St. Patrick's Day - March 17, 2023 at 1 PM - for the 35th Annual Parade in Downtown and North Lawrence, Kansas. Floats, antique cars, pipers, dancers, and more!
A little history
The Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade began in 1988 while a few friends of Irish heritage sat in a local pub enjoying a frothy pint. Finbar Collins, Bill Sullivan, and Wink Guenther collaborated with local businessmen Wes Kabler, Gene Shaughnessy and Mike Jones to hatch the plan that would become a long-standing tradition in Lawrence.
