Parade Unit Application
B-town Events will host its annual St. Paddy's Day Bash & Parade for the fourth year on Saturday, March 16th in the Streets of Downtown Burlington. This event was established through the request of a City Council Member to add a night time parade into our events calendar. The ongoing theme of the St. Paddy's Day Bash & Parade is green & luck of the Irish. We encourage attendees to dress in green and join us Downtown to enjoy bagpipes and other music, entertainment, beer, and a Golf Cart/Green Themed Parade.
