St. Patrick's Fun in Southeast Wisconsin

For Southeast Wisconsin just one parade on one day wouldn't do to celebrate the Patron Saint of Ireland.

In fact, no matter when you get up and around this weekend and no matter where you live, there is a way to celebrate Irish fellowship and fun.

Racine will host it's own parade starting at noon Saturday, March 14th at Main and 6th Streets in downtown Racine.

CBS 58's Jessica Tighe and April Dvornay are taking part.

If you're in downtown Milwaukee the Shamrock Club's parade will start a noon at 3rd and Wisconsin.

This will be a first time participating for CBS 58 News Anchor Bill Walsh, so be sure to give him a big wave.

In the afternoon, starting around 3 p.m. there's the annual Bluemound Road Parade.

The route starts at 65th Street and goes to 51st.

Organizers say watch for the leprechaun with the freakishly large head. 

The businesses, pubs, and restaurants along the route promise fun for the whole family.

The following day the Irish Fest Center in Wauwatosa is hosting a children and family celebration.

The event is Sunday, March 15th from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. 

It's open to the public and celebrates St. Patrick's Day with a variety of free Irish-themed activities, perfect for all ages.  

The center is located at 1532 N Wauwatosa Ave.

Attendees are invited to celebrate Irish heritage and learn about the year-round cultural events from Milwaukee Irish Fest while joining in on festive Irish traditions.

The Milwaukee parade also has a list of activities in the days leading up to the parade beginning with lunchtime entertainment at the Shops of Grand Avenue.
