Many St Patrick's Day events to attend in March
St Patrick's Day is always a fun day, whether you are Irish, Catholic or not! Join in for a fantastic day's entertainment at the St. Patrick's Festival WA Parade & Family Fun Day. This will be held in Leederville and turn our popular Leederville streets green.
The parade route is planned to start at the Water Corporation Car Park. It will then go down Newcastle Street, onto Oxford Street before turning right onto Vincent Street and finishing up at the Leederville Oval.
There will be a dedicated float "decant area" located in a section of the Oval to allow floats to deconstruct. Here is a map of the route to be taken.
After the parade has passed through, you can continue and go on to the Leederville Oval where there will be the St. Patrick's Festival Family Fun Day, which will feature entertainment for the whole family.
The children will be kept entertained with many children's activities including:
An animal farm
Foam and bubbles machines
Arts and crafts
A chill-out area where children can go when and if, they get tired
There will be exhibitions of traditional Irish hurling and football to entertain you during the day. There will also be some fabulous stalls where you can browse and buy from local arts, crafts, bric-a-brac and homewares among other things.
For the children who are slightly older, there will be a good line up of entertainment on the Main Stage. This includes some of Perth's best and most popular musicians and best Irish dancers.
The St. Patrick's Festival Parade and the Family Fun Day are events you definitely do not want to miss, as they will be something different and great fun.
