41st Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade

Note: The start time of the 41st Annual Silky Sullivan St. Patrick’s Parade has been changed to 2:00 p.m. and the line-up at Fourth and Beale will now be at 12:30 p.m. This change, although we hope it will not hinder in any way your participation, will make for an even more exciting parade. A 2:00 p.m. start is due to traffic concerns because of the American Athletic Conference Championship game being held that evening. However, this will allow for participation by bands, players, and pep squads of the two championship teams in the parade. This will also mean a great deal of media coverage so make sure you’re ready for your 15 minutes of fame.

Please feel free to contact Vickie Redd (901-529-0999) with any questions or concerns. All intentions are to make this the best St. Patrick’s Parade possible. So again I say… LET’S MAKE SILKY PROUD!!!
