For the past 28 years, the St Patricks Day Parade has been held around the streets of Brisbane. The inner-city district of Brisbane comes alive with the colourful convoy of more than eighty floats and displays representing Irish culture.
The 2016 St Patrick's Day Parade attracted nearly 40 000 spectators into Brisbane's CBD and with live music and food stalls in the Botanic Gardens before AND after the Parade, this year is shaping up to be even bigger and better.
A sensational afternoon at The Brisbane German Club, 416 Vulture Street, East Brisbane, listening to the spectacular music of the QLD Irish Choir. The Choir will be celebrating St Patrick's Day with the Irish Pipe Band and Irish Dancers.
The cost is $15 which includes a scrumptious afternoon tea.
Bookings can be made through:-

Thanks for providing St Patrick'sDay feedback. More info re where the great music coul be found would have been a help.
I was born and have lived in Brisbane for many decades . I saw the parades start up at Dooley's Pub in the Valley. Attended All Hallows where this was a major celebration- not many in those days! Loss of the Irish Club very sad 😥
