Enjoy the bag pipes and the cheers of the spectators lining the streets along with the flags, floats, kids, and pipe band music. You will love to be Irish for a day. This year, the 16th Annual Parade promises to be even bigger and better than last year! Get out of your apartment in Mooresville and join the largest party around.
This year’s parade Grand Marshal will be Bill Duffy, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial and Administrative Officer for Bobcat Sports & Entertainment.
