Description: This annual St. Patrick's Day Parade takes place "rain or shine." It begins at 18th and Market streets and proceeds east to its conclusion at Broadway and Market streets. Regularly noted as one of the top in the country, the parade will be comprised of over 120 units, including marching bands, floats, huge cartoon-character balloons, 5000 plus marchers, and lots of clowns. Over 250,000 spectators, the largest of any event in downtown St. Louis, are expected to attend, packing the streets with smiling Irish eyes and festive green attire.

Food and drink will be sold at numerous locations along the parade route. Many of the booths will serve soft drinks, hot dogs, burgers, bratwurst, and beer, along with other snacks and novelties. In addition, visit the Irish Village, at Kiener Plaza for food, fun, and entertainment all day long.

There is a family-friendly area to watch the giant helium character balloons close-up as they are being inflated. Come watch as Murphy the Leprechaun, the Irish Flag, and all of the other balloons rise up before your eyes. Volunteer will be on hand to answer all of your questions. The inflation will be in Aloe Plaza, near the corner of 18th and Chestnut, between the hours of 8 am to 11 am.
