St. Patrick's Day Festivities!

St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow, and there are tons of activities going on in downtown Indianapolis.

The Greening of the Canal by Mayor Greg Ballard begins at 6 am. That may sound early, but Village Pantry will be on site handing out free coffee and donuts!

The 31st Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade starts at 11:30 am. Here is the parade route:
  • Begin at North Street and Pennsylvania Street
  • South on Pennsylvania Street to Ohio Street
  • West on Ohio Street to Meridian Street
  • North on Meridian Street to Michigan Street
The above parade route and surrounding streets will be closed beginning at 11:30 a.m.  The affected streets are expected to reopen by 3 p.m.

If you can't make the earlier festivities, there is lots going on later in the day as well. There is an Irish Fest at the Rathskellar, free wine tasting at the Mass Ave Wine Shoppe, concert of Irish favorites by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, and much more.
