St. Patrick's Day Parade Downtown Fort Lauderdale 2013

Vader let the troops have a day off!
Don't miss the Parade!
Saturday, March 9, 2013 - 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. along Los Olas Blvd, from S.E. 8th Avenue to Andrews Avenue, from noon to 1:30 p.m.

11:00 am Traditional Irish Blessing at Huizenga Plaza, located at Las Olas Boulevard and Andrews Avenue. At 12:00 pm the U.S. Coast Guard's signature red helicopter will perform a flyover to officially start the St. Patrick's Parade.

We went to the Parade last year (2012), it was really good and surprisingly big. How can you go wrong with Bagpipes and Irish Storm Troopers!

We parked in the library multistory, but I think next year it would be smart to park in the River Walk Garage or the one by the Museum of Discovery and Science and walk down to the Parade. It was really slammed in there!

The kids had a great time and got beads from the parade, there was also a festival in the park there on Los Olas. It's a great parade because there is plenty of shade at noon along the road and you don't have to stand out and cook in the sun!

 My favorite was the green decorated Storm Troopers and Darth Vader! I think I filled half my camera card with them alone. Go on call me a dork! I just can't help it sometimes!

This years Parade is today,  March 10th along Los Olas Blvd, from S.E. 8th Avenue to Andrews Avenue, from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Oh, and there will be STORMTROOPERS on the Riverside LAWN for photos between 10am-11:30 before the parade!  

See you there!
