Slidell St. Patrick’s Day Parade
March 8 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Slidell will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2020 on Sunday, March 8 beginning at 1:00 p.m.
Rolling since 1974 in the heart of Olde Towne Slidell, this will be the 47th year that the Olde Towne Slidell Merchants’ Association presents the parade, rolling every year on the second Sunday in March.
The parade features 50+ floats, walking groups, bikes, horses, cars, trucks, dance groups and school bands, and anything else one can push, pull or drag, with throws to include beads and stuffed animals, as well as everything to make a traditional Irish stew. They’ll have thousands of heads of cabbage, thousands of onions, potatoes, celery and carrots, so bring your shopping bags!
The group departs City Hall, traveling to Fremaux Avenue where it will turn left, and then left again on Front Street, veering onto Carey Street. The parade then turns right at the intersection of Carey and Pontchartrain, then right again on Front and Robert Streets, crossing Carey before taking its final left, onto First Street and back to City Hall.
