World's Fastest Growing St. Patrick's Day Parade
The World's Fastest Growing St. Patrick's Day Parade and festivities will return in 2021! Mark your calendar for Wednesday, March 17, 2021 at 4:30 p.m. when the quirky two-block walking parade kicks off at the corner of Main and Center streets. The fun and revelry continues at the Olde Town Pavilion with refreshments, crowning of the parade's king and queen, Leprechaun Lookalike contest winner and most festive pet being awarded.
The World's Shortest Endurance Run sponsored by the Rotary Club of Rockdale takes place following the parade starting at the Conyers Welcome Center at 901 Railroad Street at 5:30 p.m. Be among the brave and bold to run the rigorous .1 mile course from the Welcome Center to The Pointe (don't worry--there's a water stop along the way)! You'll earn a T-shirt for participating and support a great cause.
Join in the fun at the St. Practice Day Street Party and St. Patrick's Day Street Party hosted by Olde Town Merchants!
The merchants of Olde Town will continue with their street party plans with Commercial Street scheduled to be closed to through traffic the evening of March 17 featuring live music.
Commercial Street will also be closed to traffic on Saturday, March 13 for a pre-St. Patrick’s Day event dubbed “St. Practice Day." Stay tuned for more details.
