Three Days of Lucky Charms at Deer Park Irish Pub

For the 16th year in a row, Deer Park Irish Pub will hold the world’s shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade (The People’s Parade) as part of a three-day schedule – affectionately dubbed “Tony’s Triple Crown” of Irish tradition and amusement.

Patrons of Fort Wayne’s number one bar (according to the most recent Fort Wayne Monthly readers’ poll) will enjoy a wide variety of activities including Irish trivia for “Beer Bucks” and the tapping of the green keg on Friday night.

Saturday offers an afternoon of spring-like tailgating fun with cornhole, cards and other Irish games, keg toss practice and an evening of live music with Elle, the Remnant. The parade’s Grand Marshal will be selected at 9:30 p.m. from photos of local leprechauns submitted by fans through Facebook.

Sunday is highlighted with traditional corned beef sandwiches, a keg toss competition, the annual Shamrock Sprint race, a pet costume contest, and the People’s Parade! The local band, Scratch N Sniff, will perform into in the evening.

Admission Saturday and Sunday is free and family friendly.

Deer Park Irish Pub is located at 1530 Leesburg Road at the intersection of Spring Street across from the University of St. Francis.

  • “The President’s doomsday scenarios are of his own choosing,” Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., argued in response to Cutter’s email. “The sequester will cut 2.3 percent, or $85 billion, from the massive $3.55 trillion the federal government is projected to spend this year alone. To put that percentage in perspective, we borrow that much money every 28 days. If the President can’t cut that much, he’ll never cut anything.”
