Brandon Chamber’s 2nd Annual Kids’ Parade – Saturday March 16th, 2024

February 29th 2024 – BRANDON MS – Brandon Chamber is proud to announce the 2nd Annual St Paddy’s Kids’ Parade in Downtown Brandon. The event is scheduled for Saturday March 16th 2024, the day before St Patrick’s Day. This will be a family friendly event, and full of fun. Festivities should begin at 8:30am CT, with many items scheduled, including a coffee trailer, face painting, a live DJ & music, jump houses, a rock climbing wall, 360 photo booth, and lots of St Patrick’s Day themed trinkets and decorations.

The parade line-up will be at 10:00am CT, and then the parade will embark on a route around Downtown Brandon. Don’t worry, the parade won’t go too fast, as it’ll go at the pace of children on their favorite bikes, trikes, big wheels, razors, and the like. Motorized children’s buggies ARE allowed, provided the vehicle has a top capable speed of 7 MPH or less (no golf carts, traditional 4-wheelers, etc). After the parade, there will be prizes for the best decorated kid/bike, 12 years of age and under. So feel free to get crazy with the St Paddy’s theme, decorate your bike, wear that goofy outfit, hat, green hair, etc.

Staging and primary parking for the parade will be in the parking lot at Brandon First Methodist Church at 205 Mary Ann Dr. There are about 80 parking places in that lot, so once it’s full, just park elsewhere in the downtown area (the parking lot at the intersection of Dining St & Poindexter St will be CLOSED for the parade). There will also be a goody bag for the first 200 participants. So be sure to Pre-Register for the Parade, by filling out the form. NOTE: Pre-Registration is REQUIRED in order to participate in the parade. All kids are welcome, and it’s FREE.

After the parade, we encourage you to mingle in Downtown Brandon… do some shopping, take in some dining at one of the many wonderful restaurants. Several of these businesses are also sponsors for this FREE event. We hope you consider showing appreciation for the sponsors by patronizing their businesses.

Registration to participate in parade is required.
