 This St. Patrick's Day, St. Louis will host not one but two St. Patrick's Day Parades.  St. Louisans and visitors alike will be able to enjoy both fun events plus other festivities on Saturday, March 17.

The St. Patrick's Day Run will step off at 9 a.m. from Broadway & Walnut.  Runners will have several routes from which to choose.  The finish line will be on 8th Street near Market.

The Downtown St. Patrick's Day Parade will begin at 11:30 a.m. from 18th and Market Streets, then proceed east on Market to Broadway (Kiener Plaza) where it will disband.  Parade-goers may enjoy the Irish Village at Kiener Plaza all day Saturday.

Since 1984 the Ancient Order of Hibernians has sponsored the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dogtown, St. Louis' Irish neighborhood.  This year will be no exception.  However, the start time of this year's parade will be 12:30 p.m.  The parade will begin at Tamm and Oakland, and go south on Tamm to Manchester.
