St Patrick’s Parade

follows the Shamrock 5K with over 50 entrants and 250 people. Beginning at the McLeod House Bistro on N. Apopka, the parade works its way through downtown Inverness Courthouse Square and up Pine Avenue past the Pine Street Pub.  It’s about hometown pride and everyone is welcome to take part!  Irish dancers, marching bands, floats and the Irish Wolfhound Brigade are just a sample of what you can expect.

Shamrock the Block

is a free concert beginning at 7 p.m. with the Doerfels Band, festival vendors with beer and wine.

The Leprechaun Costume Contest

will take place in between sets.  This year we’ll have two age groups with ages 0 – 17, and 18 – older.  Judged by crowd response for prizes.
