7th Annual Shamrock Parade

Saturday March 12 , 2022

Lexington, SC-The 7th Annual Shamrock Parade rolled down Main Street Saturday afternoon to a very enthusiastic (but bundled up) of parade watchers! It was cold but it didn’t dampen the Irish spirit of those who marched and those watching!

From Irish Dancers, to Choo Choo Trains, Musical Bands, Floats, Pageant Winners to even a Mountain Dew drinking Camel as Abraham made a surprise appearance as the Redeemed Band performed on Main Street.

Irish eyes were smiling …even if it felt like we were the Christmas Parade with the frigid temperatures.

More photos and highlights to come….


The Parade is on!


The Shamrock Family Fun Parade is set to launch 2pm Saturday in Downtown Lexington. The Rain ends in the early morning and the afternoon is partly sunny and early spring kind of weather!
