History of the Martin City St. Patrick’s Parade

The Martin City parade began in 1987 when four Martin City business owners grabbed their friends, hopped in two cars and a horse and buggy, and held an impromptu St. Patrick’s “parade” down 135th Street. Over the years, the parade has become an inspiring showcase of 60+ businesses, dance teams, schools, car clubs, dignitaries, animal groups, and more.  Read the full story in the Martin City Telegraph
