This March, you can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with several different parades and events all over Kansas City! The Snake Saturday Parade & Festival in North Kansas City is one of the first events to kick off the week of celebrations. This particular celebratory day is also a fundraiser, and its goal is to award over $50,000 in prize monies to 50–100 local charities.
The theme of the 2012 parade is “NKC: A Century Of Home Town Pride.” The parade will start at 11:00 a.m. on March 17, 2012, regardless of weather conditions. If you are interested in being a part of this spectacular Irish celebration and fundraiser, you can either volunteer, enter the Parade, become a sponsor, or just go enjoy the event!
