The Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center and Kitty O’Reillys Irish Pub present the 25th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Come celebrate County Door by watching the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Sturgeon Bay on March 17 at 11 am. There are many participants in the 2018 St. Patrick’s Day Parade who are ready to do their Irish jig on the streets of Sturgeon Bay and surround themselves in green.
The 25th St. Patrick’s Day Parade was first organized in 1993 by Clan O’Hern (Mike Taylor, John Scanlon, Brian Cofou, and Mark and Dan O’Hern). In 1998 the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center took over this event.
The parade begins at Sawyer Park and proceeds to Oak Street, down Madison Avenue, before heading across the Oregon Street Bridge. After crossing the bridge, the parade continues onto Third Avenue and ends at the intersection of Third Avenue and Jefferson Street. Candy, beads and goodies will be handed out by parade participants.
The Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center is still accepting parade participants. There is no cost to participate. Applications are available at SturgeonBay.net, or by calling 920.743.6246. Certificates will be awarded for the best Irish entry, best business entry, and best nonprofit entry.
