(Omaha, NE) -- Omaha's St. Patrick's Day Parade is back this year, after a two-year hiatus due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
On Monday, it was announced that The Father Flanagan’s Division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians will sponsor its annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade at 10:00 AM on Saturday, March 12th. The parade route will again be through Omaha’s Old Market beginning at 15th and Harney streets, traveling east then turning south at 11th Street to Howard Street and then turning west and ending at 14th Street.
Tim Lonergan, president of the AOH Omaha division, said, “The parade is a great family event with many creative floats, marching bands and drill teams, costumed performers, Irish Dancers and much more.”
Park Omaha will again provide discounted parking of $1 per hour at its Park 1 garage/lot at 10th and Jackson streets and its Park 4 garage/lot at 15th and Douglas streets. A Post Parade Party and Awards Presentation will immediately follow the parade at Annie’s Irish Pub at 11th Street and Capitol Avenue in the Capitol District.
Those wishing to participate in the parade should request entry forms at: email@example.com. Prizes will be awarded in three categories – floats, Irish costumes and musical presentations.
