Starts at 27th and Blake Sts., Denver
It’s not like events in Chicago or Boston, but Denver ’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is huge and very popular. The parade winds its way through a portion of LoDo—where there are conveniently many brewpubs and bars—with a variety of things Irish or not, like bagpipers and beauty queens riding in convertibles and little dogs doing tricks.
The weather can sometimes be downright wintry in March, but people still dye their hair green to match their outfits and come out for a day of celebration. The parade is held on the weekend closest to March 17 on any given year.
