World’s Shortest St. Paddy’s Day Parade?
I am a sucker for a parade. I have been to all kinds of parades. I love them, but this parade is one of my favorites. Local organizations get groups together and march up and down 13th street. They only go about two blocks and turn around. Some years are bigger than others, this year there were about ten groups. It was definitely a lot of fun out there.
Conor O’Neill’s parade is more than a decade old and is officially the shortest Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in the country. People come from far and wide for this event. I met a couple that came to Colorado for a ski trip to Breckenridge and the hotel concierge told them about the parade and they drove the two hours to Boulder. They had a great time.
I look forward to this Parade every year.
