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.
