Dublin Lions Club St. Patrick's Day Parade

Dublin Lions Club St. Patrick's Day Parade Cancelled Due to Concerns Over the Coronavirus


Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the 2020 St. Patrick's Day Celebration and all of the associated events (Pancake Breakfast, Lions Club St. Patrick's Day Parade, Shamrock 5K Fun Run, and the two-day Festival).  We are very disappointed that we had to make this decision, but given that this is a regional event that draws up to 80,000 people, it is the prudent thing to do.  

We look forward to celebrating with our community in March 2021!
