St. Patrick's Day 2018-2

The St. Patrick's Day Parade will be held at dusk Friday, March 17, in the downtown square. This is the original lighted, nighttime parade in Northwest Indiana! Come enjoy the Irish festivities and listen to the Pipes and Drums bagpipe players while they lead the parade. Food and retail vendors will be set up on Joliet Street between Court and Main streets and the historic Lake County Courthouse lawn from 3-9 p.m. 

This year, the festivities will include Shamrock Lane, a new seating and vendor area on the lawn of the historic Lake County Courthouse, providing a space for people to enjoy local cuisine before the parade. Instead of hosting the traditional drive-thru Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner, the City will share St. Patrick’s Day specials from local, Crown Point restaurants on Facebook, @CityofCrownPointIN

For the first time, the community will be asked to vote for their favorite St. Patrick’s Day Parade float by visiting Winners will be announced during the April City Council meeting. Click here to cast your vote!
