Irish celebrations come to Colorado Springs

March 11, 2014 by  

Colorado Springs people will be brought together this weekend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, with a full program of events planned.

The celebration has something for every person who attends, including the spectacular St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The promoters for the celebration may have chosen services like poster printing and flyer printing to encourage people from this community and the area to attend.

This event takes place in the downtown core and the organizers invite everyone to join them for lots of fun. This event starts off with St. Patty’s Sports Expo, taking place at Pikes Peak Center, where cyclists and runners will pick up race packets and have access to more than 25 exhibitors. This is free and the public is welcome.

The next day kicks off with the 50K bike ride, then the 5K run, followed by the Leprechaun Run. The big event – the 30th Annual Parade – happens at noon and features more than 100 entries, accompanied by bagpipers.

The costs for seating to watch the parade costs $25 per adult and kids aged 17 and under are free. St. Patrick’s Day in Colorado Springs kicks off on Friday, March 14, at the Sports Expo located at 190 Cascade Avenue, starting at 8:30am in downtown Boulder, Colorado.
