Inaugural St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Boone

Cead Mile Failte means 1000 welcomes in Gaelic!

It’s time to get your green on and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a hometown parade right in Boone! Sponsored by the Town of Boone, along with the Jones House Cultural and Community Center, this inaugural event will start at the western end of King Street at the intersection with Poplar Grove Extension, traveling east on King Street through Boone before ending at Legend’s on Hardin Street, around the corner from the Dan’l Boone Inn.

Town staff hope the parade will become a new tradition for Boone community members and visitors. “We invite all members of the community to join us as we turn Boone green for the day and celebrate the coming of spring in the High Country,” said Boone’s Cultural Resources Director Pilar Fotta.

Following the parade, continue the celebration with free cookies and refreshments on the laws of the Jones House Cultural and community Center, located at 604 King Street. Boone’s very own Mayor Rennie Brantz and other Town staff will be there to greet guest and pass out St. Patrick’s Day Treats

Later that night, the fourth annual Daniel Boone Rail Jam will take place at the town of Boone’s Daniel Boone Park.

What a great way to experience the luck of the Irish!
