This Sunday you can start your St. Patrick's celebrating a couple days early when the 28th annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival hits the streets of Armory Park with a "Peace, Love, Shamrocks" theme.

Beginning at 10 a.m., attendees can watch live music, step dancers and other entertainment, including a game area for children. Food and beverage vendors will be at the event as well—some serving "traditional Irish drinks" for the 21 and over crowd. 

Then at 11 a.m., an hour long parade will put over 1,000 participants on display for crowds to watch. You can expect plenty of floats and local celebrities, all presented by 2015's parade grand marshal Tom McNamara.

The St. Patrick's Day event runs from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 14. The parade and other festivities are free to attend. You can check out the route and map of events to get an idea of where you're going to plant yourself for the best view here and more information on this year's event can be found on the event's website.
