Entries being accepted for Lexington St. Patrick's Day parade

February 14, 2014 

The Alltech Lexington St. Patrick's Parade and Festival Committee is now accepting entries for the 35th annual parade, which will start at 1 p.m. March 15 on Main Street in downtown Lexington.

"We are looking forward to a big parade this year because we are celebrating our 35th anniversary," said Tommy McClure, longtime head of the Parade Marshals that organize the parade. "It's the longest-running continuous citywide civic activity in Lexington."

The parade will be part of an all-day celebration starting at 8 a.m. with the running of the Shamrock Shuffle to support Habitat for Humanity. At 11 a.m., there will be the annual "Blessing of the Keg" at the Alltech tents in Cheapside Park. The free Irish festival lasts until 7 p.m.

Entry forms can be found on the web site, www.LexingtonStPatsParade.org.
