The Hibernian Society of Utah St. Patrick’s Day Parade Entry Information Saturday, March 17th 2018
This year celebrates the 40th anniversary of the very first St. Patrick’s Day parade in Salt Lake City. If you were lucky enough to be present that fateful day, then you will fondly recall the enthusiasm & pride of the crowd as well as the parade participants and the opportunity we had to share and relish in our Irish heritage with the state of Utah. When the parade rounded the corner of South Temple and Main Street, the streets were filled with brightly decorated floats, families of Irish descent as well as native-born Irish with tears in their eyes from the overwhelming spectacle before them. This year we challenge parade applicants to embrace this year’s theme as well as recall that very first parade & the light-heartedness of our Irish heritage.
