(Michigan City, IN) - A St. Patrick’s Day parade in Michigan City will happen, after all. Earlier this month, the city's Mainstreet Association canceled the traditional parade due to concerns about COVID-19. But a pandemic-friendly alternative has been planned for Saturday afternoon.
A drive-thru parade is taking place today at Washington Park. Cars will be directed from Fedder’s Alley through the park to Clover Leaf Lane. Spectators will pass by festive attractions. There will be plenty to enjoy along the route… such as free candy, bagpipe players, and zoo animals.
The event is free. Originally, tickets were required, but organizers say that is no longer the case. The reverse parade starts at 1:00 this afternoon and goes until 2:15.
