29th Wearin' of the Green parade Saturday
BATON ROUGE - Preparations are underway for the 29th Annual Wearin' of the Green parade in Baton Rouge Saturday.
The parade has been a longstanding St. Patrick's Day tradition in Baton Rouge. This year's grand marshal is Louisiana State Police Superintendent Mike Edmonson.
"Mike Edmonson certainly has used his talents, abilities, and expertise to assist many in this community, for civic, youth and church programs and in the State of Louisiana, throughout the United States and most recently - countries outside of the United States," said parade organizer Grey Hammett.
The parade rolls at 10 a.m. Saturday and starts at 100 Oaks and South Acadian, then travels around local neighborhoods before ending just past the Perkins Road overpass. Click here for a full map of the parade route.
The parade's opening ceremonies will be streamed live on WBRZ.com and our mobile apps.
