Scene in S.B.: St. Paddy’s Day Stroll

Join The Indy for Our Annual Procession

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated with great fanfare all over the world. In Chicago, the river is dyed green; in Sydney, Australia, the Opera House is illuminated in emerald lights; in San Francisco, revelers parade down Market Street; and in Santa Barbara — folks stroll. It may not be the largest, or oldest, but for nearly a decade, The Independent’s St. Paddy’s Day Stroll has drawn hundreds of enthusiastic merrymakers. Beginning at 5:30 p.m. (with meet-up starting at 5 p.m.), the Pipe and Drum Corps will once again lead the procession from The Indy office (122 W. Figueroa St.) down State Street (on the sidewalk), concluding at Blush (630 State St.). Bring your friends, family, and neighbors, and help The Indy staff make a spectacle for the eighth year. Irish for a day, Independent for life.

This story was updated on March 12, 2015, to include the start time of the Stroll.
