You know spring is almost here when people start thinking about the St Patrick’s Day Parade and opening day at Comerica Park. Last year, thousands of green clad St. Patrick Day enthusiasts lined the streets to celebrate the 57th annual parade, the end of winter and perhaps run in the 5k race. Tents will be set along the route for party goers to partake in some green beer along with numerous nearby pubs eager to accommodate the festive crowds. There are several events leading up to the special day but the main events take place on March 13 starting with a 9:00am mass at Holy Trinity on Porter Street, followed by the parade which kicks off at noon sharp from the corner of 6th and Michigan Avenue. The two hour parade includes marching and pipe drum bands, clowns, floats, color guard units and ends at 14th street.
The Corktown race includes a few options from the kids’ quarter mile to a one mile walk to the 5k. All finishers of the 5k receive a die cast pewter keepsake medal. Top overall winner, top overall, master, grandmaster, and senior grandmaster male and female winners receive special recognition medals.
The excitement of opening Day at Comerica Park is a long standing tradition and a great way to come out and support the home team Detroit Tigers. Many consider this event a local holiday so it’s not surprising to find thousands of people packing the local restaurants or holding tailgate parties in the hours leading up to the first pitch. Tickets go fast for this event but that doesn’t stop die-hard fans without tickets from heading down to experience the thrill of opening day.
These two popular Detroit events draw thousands of people and parking can be scarce and expensive. Van Hove Limousine will pick up you and your guests and get them safely to their destination as well as get them home in one piece after a long day of festivities and shenanigans.
