Parade Shenanigans will be had...
Everyone’s Irish for the day in the World’s Fastest Growing St. Patrick’s Day Parade that will take place on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. in Olde Town Conyers. This is a two-block walking parade and everybody is encouraged to meet at the corner of Main and Center streets prior to 4:30 p.m. to join in this annual tradition.
There is an annual crowning of children’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade king and queen, a Leprechaun Lookalike Contest for adults, and a pet costume contest at the conclusion of the parade. Prizes will be awarded! There are also complimentary Irish-themed refreshments at the Olde Town Pavilion.
World's Shortest Endurance Run Follows the Parade
Following the parade is the 10th Annual World’s Shortest Endurance Run sponsored by the Rotary Club of Rockdale County. The run, .1 mile in length from the Conyers Welcome Center to The Pointe on Railroad Street, begins with a shotgun start at 5:30 p.m. (new time!) and participants who enter will receive a T-shirt.
Businesses in Olde Town will offer great deals on merchandise as well as food and drink specials for parade attendees.
