Central OH Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day 2013

by Maureen McCabe on March 4, 2013

Central Ohio celebrates St. Patrick’s Day in Columbus and Dublin!

St. Patrick

The Columbus St. Patrick’s Day Parade is Sunday, March 17, 2013… St. Patrick’s Day, of course.  The Columbus St. Patrick’s Day Parade must be on St. Patrick’s Day according to the Shamrock Clubs bylaws, I believe.

The Shamrock Club website says of St. Patrick’s Day 2013:

The Shamrock Club Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be Sunday March 17, 2013. The Parade will form at Nationwide Blvd and John H. McConnell Blvd between 10:30am and 11:30am.

The Dublin, Ohio St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the day before, Saturday, March 16, 2013. It is nice for both local parades to be scheduled the same weekend. Kind of. It may make for a very busy weekend if  people want to do both parades.   Dublin refers to their parade as “Greenest, Grandest St. Patrick’s Day Parade!”

The City of Dublin website says:

“In 2012, Dublin, Ohio’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade was recognized by Orbitz as one of the Top 10 Spots to Get in the Irish Spirit on St. Patrick’s Day.”

Last year’s Dublin St. Patrick’s Day Parade was March 10, 2012.

Other events in Columbus and Dublin to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2013 include:

Lion’s Club Breakfast – Dublin
Inflation Celebration
Performance by The Hooligans
The Irish Family Reunion at Vet’s Memorial  (after the Columbus St. Patrick’s Day Parade)

The City of Dublin website and the Shamrock Club of Columbus  site are both places to find details about central Ohio celebrating St. Patrick’s Day 2013.  ExperienceColumbus.com is a great resource for details ON all central Ohio events.

There was a controversy five ago because the Shamrock Club must  hold the Columbus St. Patrick’s Day Parade on St. Patrick’s Day.  The dilemma was that March 17, 2008  was the Monday of Holy Week and the Catholic diocese told Catholics to observe “holy week”  and not St. Patrick’s Day.   Yep, here it is  Columbus Dilemma , St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Columbus made national news because

There is no dilemma, no controversy about St. Patrick’s Day in central Ohio in 2013.   The photos are from 2012 St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Columbus and Dublin, two gorgeous Saturdays in a row.  Perhaps with the luck of the Irish and those not Irish,  the 2013 weather will be good for the Central Ohio St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations.
