After a 2-year hiatus, THE PARADE IS BACK! The 48th annual Crosslake St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Celebration will hit the streets this Saturday, March 19! You don’t have to be Irish to appreciate all the excitement and weekend festivities. Dust off the lawn chairs and load up your friends and family as this beloved tradition is back and better than ever!
If you haven’t experienced Crosslake’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, you’re missing out on the best parade in the state (WCCO-TV’s Viewers’ Choice for Best Parade in Minnesota)! One visit and you’ll come back year-after-year. The Crosslake community rallies around this family friendly event. Float after float is buzzing with activity, music, and candy.
While the parade is the highlight of the weekend, you can also participate in the Clover Dash 5K
. If you chase the clues to find the Lost Pot O Gold
, you could find yourself donning a basket FULL of gifts courtesy of Crosslake Chamber Member businesses! Local shops and restaurants offer deals
on green beer and corned beef, sweatshirts and décor! End the night dancing away at one of the area establishments with live music and more! Make the Crosslake St. Patrick’s Day Parade your next tradition.
