St. Paddy’s Day Parade set for March 23


Metro residents are eagerly awaiting one of the most notable Jackson events of the year, as Hal’s St. Paddy’s Parade & Festival makes its grand return on March 23, 2024 in downtown Jackson, officials announced last month. 

The official theme for this year’s celebration is “Telling the Mississippi Story,” highlighting the rich and unique cultural heritage of the state. Leading the parade as the Grand Marshal is the distinguished WJTV broadcaster, accomplished author, and proud Mississippian, Walt Grayson. As in previous years, the parade and festival will raise funds for Children’s of Mississippi.

In addition to the parade festivities, the annual “Run the Rainbow” event is set to take place on March 16, 2024, the weekend before parade weekend, also benefiting Children’s of Mississippi.

“We are grateful to our partners at Capital City Beverages for their steadfast support of the Hal’s St. Paddy’s Parade & Festival,” said Malcolm White. “We also acknowledge and appreciate Visit Mississippi, Downtown Jackson Partners, Community Foundation for Mississippi, and numerous other sponsors whose partnership makes this event possible.”
