Lexington's 34th annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival is just around the corner.

The deadline for entries in this year’s parade is February 28. The parade will be held beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 16, in downtown Lexington. To enter the parade, there is no charge for community or non-profit organizations. Entry fees for commercial organizations are $150 and for political organizations, $175.

Entry forms are available on the parade website www.lexingtonStPatsParade.org.

This year’s festivities will begin with a “Blessing of the Keg” at 11 a.m. at the Alltech tents in CentrePointe where the first keg of the day, a barrel of Alltech Bourbon Barrel Ale will be piped into the festival, blessed by a priest, tapped and samples distributed amid various Irish toasts.

The parade will form on Midland Avenue, proceed down Main Street, past the reviewing stand next to CentrePointe and end as it turns onto Vine Street.
