On Saturday, March 14 a huge crowd gathered at Kiroli Park for the 3rd Annual St. Paddy’s Bicycle Parade and Festival, hosted by Love Your Community.

Guests were encouraged to wear their best Irish costumes, decorate their bikes and dress their pets to participate. Face painting, costume contests and live Irish music set the tone for the day.

The bicycle parade kicked off the event that morning before guests enjoyed jumpers, face painting, food and mingling. Among local businesses and organizations, PAWS of Northeast Louisiana, KEDM, John Rea Realty and the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo were there, providing demonstrations and treats for the kids.
