The parade will stroll down Main Street on Saturday, March 16th at 10:00 am.  Be prepared for a grand event, as this year’s parade is being held right on St. Patrick’s Day – the entire town of Visalia will be celebrating!   Downtown will be filled with folk’s taking in the Irish Cheer, so arrive early to stake out your spot along the parade route.  The parade will begin at Garden Street Plaza, head West on Main Street and then North on Willis, ending at the just north of Center St.   The Parade Committee is delighted to bestow this year’s Grand Marshal honor to, Assemblywoman Connie Conway.    Excitement will fill Downtown Visalia with sounds of marching bands from Visalia and Farmersville!  There will be sirens sounding from the Visalia Police and Fire Departments as they kick-off and end the parade.  Prancing horses, mascots, a variety of antique and collectable cars, as well as, floats and community groups will strut down Main Street in their St. Patty’s Day best!     The fun and excitement goes on and on, but it doesn’t stop with the parade!  Throughout the day, celebration will continue…   KJUG Morning Radio Host Mike Pesto, will our parade MC.     With so many events going on throughout the day, we have partnered with the Visalia Towne Trolley and will be offering FREE trolley rides from 1pm – 6pm on St. Patrick’s Day.  The trolley will stop at numerous locations throughout downtown, as well as, making stops at downtown parking garages and Rawhide Stadium.   We encourage everyone to come out and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Downtown Visalia.   We thank our very special sponsors: Sequoia Beverage and Budweiser, The Times Delta Media Group, Kaweah Delta Health Care District, The Visalia City Counsel and Valley Business Bank.   As a partner of the Arts Consortium we thank their kind help and support.    For more information please visit, www.artsconsortium.org (go to forms to register on line)
