St. Patricks Day Parade
The Denver St. Patrick's Day Parade is a festive and fun event for all ages that celebrates Irish culture and heralds the start of spring. It's one of the largest St. Patty's day parades west of the Mississippi, and the largest annual parade in Denver, with more than 200,000 people lining the route to enjoy horses and stagecoaches, marching bands, dancers, floats and Irish-themed fun with a Western flair. To catch all the action, the best spectating spot is south of 20th Avenue on Blake Street (renamed Tooley Street for the parade). This area tends to be crowded, so the best place for families to watch the parade is near the end, on Blake Street from 23rd to 27th avenues. The parade starts at 9:30 a.m., but folks come as early as 6 a.m. to stake out a spot.
