Pick A Place: Irish Fun for the Little Lads and Lassies

For over 30 years, what is now known as the Hal’s St. Paddy’s Day Parade in downtown Jackson has grown and taken on a life of its own. It’s Jackson’s green Mardi Gras, and it’s truly some outrageous fun. But if you need something a little less outrageous for your little ones, check out the Hal’s St. Paddy’s Children’s Festival and Parade. Inky the Clown will be there as Master of Ceremonies, and there will be lots of scheduled activities and entertainment just perfect for the family. Costumes, pets, trophies, and FUN are on the agenda for the day!
