SHORTEST AND SMALLEST ST. PATTY’S DAY PARADE

844 Feet of Frolicking Fun in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward

MILWAUKEE – March 12, 2012 – Sure Milwaukee has the traditional lineup of bagpipers, dancers, bands and corned beef and cabbage this holiday, but we’ve also got a two-block march packed with all the fun you need at the 6th Annual Shortest and Smallest St. Patty’s Day Parade.

Join in on the celebrations in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. The parade kicks off at 3:30 p.m. on a two-block march from the Irish Pub to Club Charlies alongside a bagpiper, the award-winning McMenamin Irish dancers, Irish singer, Ian Gould, and fellow St. Patty’s Day partiers.

Celebration specials will run at both locations, but keep alert! The Blarney Stone and a leprechaun might make a magical appearance along the way in Catalano Square for visitor pictures!
