Downtown Roanoke, Inc. would like to invite you and your family and friends to Southwest Virginia’s premiere St. Patrick’s Day celebration, the 24th Annual McDonald’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival. On Saturday, March 16th between 10am and 5pm we’re going to paint the town green! The festival will be held in a new location this year directly behind the City Market Building on Market Street. This St. Paddy’s event attracts over 15,000 individuals every year so be sure to make it downtown to see what all the fuss is about! What better way to spend your Saturday than to enjoy a delightful dose of Irish tradition and get in on the festive spirit!
