Set a reminder in your phone for March 17th at noon so your kids don't miss this year's St. Paddy's Day parade in downtown Missoula. The holiday falls on a Saturday this year, so there's sure to be plenty of celebrating to take part in throughout the day and night.

If you'd like to take part in this year's parade, applications are now available at the Missoula Chamber of Commerce at 825 East Front and online. Line up will begin at 11 a.m. on the day of the parade.

You can always count on us to be at the parade with plenty of candy, and Your Fairy Godmothers will also take part again so that kids can see some of their favorite heroes and princesses in the parade.

Following the parade, Your Fairy Godmothers will be at Anderson Park (across from Rockin' Rudy's) for a meet and greet and photo ops.
