Visalia Breakfast Lions Club invites you to join them for the fun and festivities of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.The parade will stroll down Main Street on Saturday, March 12 at 10am.
Downtown will be filled with folks taking in the Irish Cheer, so arrive early to stake out your spot along the parade route. The parade will begin at Church Street, head West on Main Street and then North on Willis, ending at the just north of Center Street.
The parade committee is delighted to bestow this year’s Grand Marshal Honor to, Marilynn Mitchell. We are excited to have her as our 2015 Grand Marshal. Come out and cheer for Marilynn Mitchell.
Excitement will fill Downtown Visalia with sounds of marching bands from Visalia and throughout Tulare County. There will be sirens sounding from the Visalia Police and Fire Departments as they kick-off and end the parade. Prancing horses, mascots, a variety of antique and collectable cars, as well as, floats and community groups will strut down Main Street in their St. Paddy’s Day best.
KJUG Morning Radio Host Mike Pesto along with Chad, April Skye from Classic Rock 99.7 and Randy Hendix from 104.9 (all from Momentum Broadcasting) will be announcing the parade entries. They will be at different locations on the parade route so, come on down and find your favorite announcer.
The fun and excitement goes on and on, but it doesn’t stop with the parade–throughout the day, celebration will continue.
With so many events going on throughout the day, we have partnered with the Visalia Towne Trolley and will be offering FREE trolley rides from 1-5pm. The trolley will stop at numerous locations throughout downtown, as well as making stops at downtown parking garages and Rawhide Stadium.
