St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Thousands will jam the streets of St. Paul to watch the 51st annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Enjoy marching bands, Irish dancers and a round of up live music. The parade begins at noon at 5th street from Wacouta Street to Rice Park. Across the river, the 49th Annual Minneapolis St Patrick’s Day Parade takes place at 7:30 p.m. starting at 6th and Marquette and going to 11th and Marquette.

Twin Cities Women’s Expo

It’s Everything Women! Food, fashion, fun, shopping, fitness, and relaxation are all part of the 7th Annual Twin Cities Women’s Expo. The expo is this Saturday at the Minneapolis Convention Center Ballroom. Expect awesome talks, self-empowerment and a great weekend out with your girlfriends, sisters, mothers and grandmothers!
