The 2013 Louisville Kentucky St. Patrick's Day Parade!
The Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) will sponsor their 40th Annual AOH St. Patrick’s Parade on March 9, 2013.
“Our theme this year is ‘Forty Shades of Green,’” said Mark Wakefield, AOH president, “We are proud of our 40-year tradition in sponsoring the St. Patrick’s Parade. We welcome all to join us in this fun start for spring as we honor St. Patrick and celebrate our Irish heritage that so many of us share."
As many as 125 units are expected again for this year’s parade that will step off at 3 p.m. at Baxter and Broadway proceeding along the Baxter/Bardstown Road corridor. Often called the “people’s” parade, families join a mix of decorated vehicles and groups along the route. As many as 50,000 people watched or marched in last year’s parade.
