Some people will say this is the official St. Patrick's Day Parade in St. Louis. For one thing it is always held on March 17th. It's held in the traditional St. Louis Irish neighborhood known as Dogtown. The parade is put on by the Ancient Order of Hibernians. Need we say more? It's fun, it's a little tight on the parade route. But you have to see it! The parade starts at 12:30pm.
