The luck of the Irish was upon us and thousands of Irish eyes were smiling! The rain held off and the weather was balmy for the 55th Detroit St. Patrick's Parade, sponsored by the United Irish Societies (UIS), on Sunday, March 10, 2013! It started on Michigan Avenue and 6th Street, continuing down to 14th Street. Click HERE for the 2013 Detroit St. Patrick's Parade Winners.
In 1959, the United Irish Societies, sponsored the first St. Patrick's Parade in Dearborn, MI. The Parade route follows along Michigan Avenue through the area known as Corktown. Corktown received it's name as the Irish were the largest ethnic group of newcomers to Detroit, most of them from County Cork. The Corktown neighborhood is Detroit's oldest surviving neighborhood.
Everyone is welcomed to march in the parade. The 2014 56th Detroit St. Patrick's Parade is Sunday, March 16, 2014, starting at 12:00 pm. Be sure to mark your calendars!
A heartfelt thank you for everyone involved with the 2013 parade! There was countless hours, effort and dedication that went into make the 2013 parade the huge success it was.
