St. Patrick’s Parade and 5k
March 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Downtown Racine St. Patrick’s Day Parade, presented by the Downtown Racine Corporation, returns on Saturday, March 14th.
Things will get off to a running start as downtown will be host to a 5K, which begins at about 11:45 a.m., so make sure to get there early in order to stake out a viewing area. The parade itself will officially begin on the corner of State Street and Main Street at around noon. The route will proceed south on Main Street, turn west onto Sixth Street and end near City Hall.
In partnership with 5KEvents.org, the parade will be host to the 7th annual St. Pat’s Day 5K®. For those working their way up to a 5K, the race organizers are also featuring a “Paddy’s 0.08ish K.” Both the 5K and 0.08ish K will start near Pepi’s Bar and Grill, run east on 6th Street and continue north on Main Street. The 0.08ish K will end at The Brickhouse on Main Street. The 5K will continue on towards the lakefront along the Lake Michigan Pathway, and finish where the parade starts on State Street and Main Street. Look for the top male and female finishers as they will join the parade procession upon their completion of the 5K.
