Make a note to wear green to this one. Hosted by nonprofit Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, this year's local St. Patrick’s Day Parade is scheduled to kick off at noon the Saturday before St. Paddy’s Day. The Friendly Sons of St. Patrick have been organizing traditional Irish ceremonies and events, including the parade, in Spokane since 1978, and have teamed up with numerous community businesses to make the 37th annual parade an authentic Irish experience. Wear your greenest clothes, and look for the pathway of four-leaf clovers painted on downtown streets to find the best parade-watching spots.
