It’s not officially Spring until March 20, but I always think of the Brookside St Pat’s parade as the real kick-off to the warmer weather season. And as of today, the weather is forecast to be partly cloudy and in the upper 50s for the big day! Here are the details:
The 34th Annual Brookside St Patrick’s Day Warm Up Parade is this Saturday, March 15 at 2pm. The route: parade vehicles will line up along Brookside Road, and the starting point is 65th St and Wornall; turning north on Wornall to 63rd; east on 63rd to Main;, south on Main to Meyer; West on Meyer back to Brookside Road. Bring your lawn chair early to grab a close in spot along the route, and watch for road closures and heavy pedestrian traffic in the afternoon.
And if you plan to celebrate all things Irish on the official St Patrick’s Day, two Waldo bars make it easy for you to party all day on March 17. One ticket gets you access to both Lew’s and The Well for the St Patrick’s Day Irish Hooley. Enjoy drink and food specials plus live music at both locations. And thankfully both spots are close enough to walk back and forth! Advance tickets are $5 online at www.waldowell.com or www.lewsgrillandbar.com.
Have a fun celebration with friends and family…and be safe!
