A treasured Utah tradition for St. Patrick’s Day is the annual parade and Siamsa, put on by the Hibernian Society of Utah. This year’s celebration will take place on Saturday, March 17th 2012 at The Gateway.
The theme for this year’s parade is “Bless The American Worker”. The parade begins at 10am, and will travel through The Gateway mall. Get there early, because this annual tradition becomes more popular each year.
Directly after the parade, the Siamsa will begin. Siamsa is the Irish word for “celebration”. It will take place at The Gateway Grand Hall. There will be Irish food, music and dancing. It will last until 4pm.
