FAMILY FRIENDLY FUN TIME
the Irish-Italian Parade is one of the most talked about family friendly organiztaion in Metairie. We have been rolling since the early 80’s for families in the Greater New Orleans area. Over the years, our organization has grown but still mantained a family oriented atmosphere where you can take your kids and grandkids to have a good time along the route. Stand on the neutral or sidewalk side to catch tons of stuff from the 120+ units we have in our lineup. Everything from marching groups to floats to trucks, we have them all!
We are known for hosting the largest parade in Metairie that typically has anywhere between 250k to 350k people in attendance. Families from all around gather around in the early morning hours, ready to stake our their spots in preparation for our crews to pass by them. Who knew it would be so much fun, right?
