St.Patrick's Day brings a lot of fun to Colorado Springs. The festive parade, 5K run, Irish beer tastings, pub crawls, folk music and performances—there are many ways to celebrate the National holiday of Ireland in Colorado Springs.
The parade starts at noon in the Downtown of Colorado Springs. The route begins on the corner of Tejon Street and E. St. Vrain; then it continues south on Tejon Street to Vermijo. The best spots to watch the parade are at the St.Pat’s Grand Stands. You can buy the tickets there. You can also attend the ceremony on Tejon since this long street provides plenty of space for everyone to find a good spot.

The parade is attended by 35,000 people. Prior to the parade there is a50K bike ride, 5K for St Pats run and the Leprechaun Fun Run for the wee ones. St.Paddy's Day Pop-up Pub will be serving special coctails and Irish beer. Don't forget to put on your best green outfit and join the fun!
