29th Annual Shenanigan’s St. Patrick's Parade - Gulfport

March 16

The popular tourist event and local favorite, celebrates the Irish heritage of so many of us on the MS Gulf Coast, as well as the many blessings enjoyed by all: faith, family and friends! The parade includes more than 50 units, with marchers, antique cars, floats, bagpipes and more. Spectators come from as far away as 100 miles, to catch the unique "prizes" thrown from the many colorful units, wooden nickels, beads, mini green beer steins, cabbages, potatoes and onions. The parade's official mascot is "Mr. Finnigan", and he is joined each year by a Grand Marshall and a Colleen, selected by the Quota Club.
