35th Annual Colorado Springs St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Mar 16th, 8:30am - 2:00pm
The 35th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade begins at noon and features more than 100 entries including bands, floats, firetrucks, car clubs, horses, and leprechauns marching through the streets spreading their Irish Cheer.
Join the festivities beginning 8:30 a.m. for the 50k Bike Ride, which features three courses ranging from a family friendly course, to and intermediate course, to a grueling (but amazing) ride from downtown to the top of Woodmen at Blodgett Peak and returning for a party and ride in the parade.
At 10 a.m., join the 5k on St. Patrick’s Day Run, a flat, easy route to ease you back into the running season.
Then at 11 a.m., kids can participate in the Leprechaun Fun Runs. There are two heats that run up and back on Tejon Street starting and ending at Acacia Park. A One Mile course for youngsters age 6 to 12, and a Half-Mile course for those 5 and under. Parents may tag along with the 5 and under runners. Registration is required and kids get a t-shirt and a chance to meet the Chick-fil-A Cows!
