St. Patrick's Parade w/ Road Closures
Each year, the Louisville Hibernians put together, with the wonderful help of all of our “Irish” friends, the greatest parade of ALL TIME! Often called the “people’s” parade, families join a mix of decorated vehicles and groups along the route. As many as 100,000+ people watched or marched in last year’s parade. Over 100 units are expected again for this year’s parade that will step-off at 3:00 p.m. at Baxter Ave and Broadway proceeding along the Baxter/Bardstown Road corridor.
The Grand Marshal will be the Irish Person of the Year who was selected by AOH officers and members.
