The City Will Turn Green During the 39th Annual Warm-Up Parade Celebrating St. Paddy

Located in Kansas City, Brookside is Kansas City's first suburban shopping area. Today Brookside is home to over 80 shops, restaurants, and offices, all unique and in keeping with the original neighborhood charm and architecture. This year, the Brookside 39th Annual St. Patrick's Warm-Up Parade will take place on March 16!

The annual Brookside St. Patrick’s Warm-Up Parade is a fun, family-oriented event occurring the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day. The parade draws participants and spectators from around the metro and kicks off a spirit-filled week in Kansas City celebrating St. Patrick's Day. The Brookside Business Association and Community Improvement District sponsor the celebration each year with support from the Kansas City Neighborhood Tourism Development Fund.

Over 100 organizations and businesses from across the metro enter the parade each year. Whether marching, dancing, walking or riding vehicles ranging from red wagons and bikes to floats and classic cars, the entrants, music and other festivities are sure to entertain groups and families of all ages.

Entries include bands, drill teams, Irish dancers, bagpipers, the mounted patrol, and dogs of all shapes and sizes including Basset Hounds, Great Danes and of course, Irish Setters. It’s a one-of-a-kind event that you don’t want to miss!

Even though Edgewater at City Center Apartments in Lenexa, Kansas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
