History of the Martin City St. Patrick’s Parade

The very first Martin City parade in 1987 consisted of four Martin City business owners who grabbed their friends, hopped in two cars and a horse & buggy, and held an impromptu St. Patrick’s “parade” down 135th Street. 

Over the years, the parade has become an inspiring showcase of more than 60+ businesses, dance teams, schools, car clubs, dignitaries, animal groups, and more.  Read the full story in the Martin City Telegraph>>
