St. Patrick's Day Parade Information



This flyer explains the initiatives the City is taking to limit the impact of the St. Patrick’s Day parade and party on our Lower Greenville neighborhoods. This is a result of a joint effort of Dallas Police, neighborhood residents, special events office, code, sanitation, parking enforcement, event sponsors, me, and others.
