My Irish blood, however diluted it is at this point, begins bubbling with excitement this time of year. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. Start celebrating early at Denver’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, one of the top 10 parades in the country and the largest parade west of the Mississippi.
Denver expects 300,000 spectators to cheer 2017 Queen Colleen Laura Farley; this year’s Grand Marshal James M. Lyons; and other Irish traditions at this year’s parade.
Dress for crazy Colorado in March, grab a Guinness, shepherd’s pie for the little ones and get your inner leprechaun on.
