The Irish Marching Society is announcing that the Registration Period for the 2020 St. Patrick’s Parade will  officially open on January 25th.  If you have a float or a group of marchers that you would like to register you may do so by going to the website at  For families, Clans, charities, not for profit and municipal organizations (ie police, fire, sheriff) there is no fee but all must register before prior to marching.   If you have an animal bigger than a dog or  something that shoots off confetti or smoke you must mention that in your registration.  All other parade information and fees are published on the website.   Come out and join the fun and celebrate the contributions of Irish heritage to our community.  The more green the better!!

  1. We purchased 2 tickets for Irish fest but not sure if it went through as we think it was under Irish Fest 2019. Can you check if two tickers were purchased for Dennis Dougherty

  2. Hello, We just purchased tickets for Prairie Street after the parade. It was a bit confusing as we saw references to 2019 on the purchase site.
    Did the tickets get purchased for 2020. If all went well they are will called under Dennis Dougherty
