This year's St. Patrick's Day Parade in Missoula will be on Saturday, March 11 starting at noon. The parade will start downtown at the corner of Spruce and Higgins, and travel across the river to Beckwith and Higgins.

Lots of green attire is encouraged! After the parade, many adults may be hitting places like the Thomas Meagher bar for a green beer, while the kids will most certainly want to go to Anderson Park to meet their favorite princesses and super heroes!

Local group "Your Fairy Godmothers," who have been seen at such fun events as Kidabaloo, the Frozen Sing-a-Long and the Missoula Lip Sync Battle, will be at Anderson Park, 220 Blaine Street, directly after the parade for a meet and greet. Bring your kids down for fun and photos with this highly professional group.

This post parade event will be held from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m.
