What is the St. Patrick's Day Grand Parade?

Visitors and residents will enjoy the Quad Cities' St. Patrick Day parade which is considered one of the best in the Midwest and one of the top ten parades in North America.  Thousands of specatators line the parade route to watch bands, Irish dancers, floats, groups, and family clans. The day ends with Iowa's largest St. Patrick's party. The St. Patrick's Day Parade celebrates the spirit of St. Patrick and Irish Heritage and begins at 11:30am in downtown Rock Island, Illinois, and winds its way to the Centennial Bridge. 

The post-parade 'bash' includes food, drink, live Irish music and dancers, along with the presentation of the parade trophy winners.
