Dallas St. Patrick's Parade and Festival at Dallas St. Patrick's Parade on Greenville Avenue
Tiney Ricciardi Recommends
Break out your best green garb -- the Dallas' St. Patrick's Day festival is one of the most fun events of the year. Start the day on Upper Greenville where floats parade down the road, then gradually make your way south to Lower Greenville where you'll find free live music and beer at every corner. Crash a house party and make new friends, or stop by the Third Eye Blind concert. And remember: It's a marathon, not a sprint.
The parade is free to attend along the parade route. There will be stadium bleachers seats available in the Meadow's Building area - $20, $15 for children 11 and younger. Seating is first come, first serve.
