St. Patrick's Day Parade in Corktown Detroit

The Detroit classic returns to Michigan Avenue for a 56th year. Families can catch the parade, which features floats, bands and more, March 16, 2014.

Michigan Avenue in Detroit's Historic Corktown will be a sea of green on Sunday March 16, 2014 when people young and old grab their greatest Irish-colored gear and head to the city for the 56th annual St. Patrick's Parade!

The annual shebang welcomes tens of thousands of people each year and is a Detroit must for families and visitors of all ages.

The festivities step off at noon on Sixth Street and Michigan Avenue. The parade, which makes it way down Michigan Avenue to 14th Street and takes about two hours, features marching, pipe and drum bands, floats, clowns and more.

Feeling like burning a few calories? Register for the 32nd annual Corktown Races, which kicks off at 10 a.m. There's also a Kids Quarter Mile at 9:30 a.m., so you can get the tykes involved in the action, too!

Get the party started early at the ninth annual Patrick/Joseph Party on Saturday, March 15, which features Polish and Irish music and dancing, along with food and drinks for $25. Seating for this event is limited, so call in advance to secure your tickets.

It's free to celebrate Irish heritage for the day – and of course, all are welcome! Be sure to check the forecast before heading out, as Michigan's weather is unpredictable.
