Belton will be celebrating St. Patrick's Day a little bit early--on Saturday, March 16, 2013. The Wendall T. Ivers Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade is scheduled for 5p.m. to 5:30p.m. in downtown Belton. The parade route begins on Hackberry and travels to Main Street, Main to Cherry, Cherry to Second Street, and back to Hackberry. For more information on the parade, please go to http://www.belton.org or on Facebook at Belton St. Patrick's Day Parade.
After the parade, an event is being held at Turner's German-American Hall, located at Bong and Westover (Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base). Food, beverages, and awards are available. Fun to be had by all.
So, come on out to Belton and get into the spirit of the Irish!
