  Our annual St Patrick's Day is held the FIRST Saturday of March,  held the morning of Antique Trade Days, in downtown Ponchatoula.  MARCH 5, 2022, 1030 am Courtesy of Lori Egnew Hess What makes OUR parade unique, is that we have kept it to a walking parade! No floats here! Courtesy of Lori Egnew Hess Our Krewe members participate in a 'Cart Raid' the night before the parade, absconding with shopping carts, that get filled with cabbage and all sorts of veggies, likes potatoes, carrots and onions, as well as green themed parade throws. Courtesy of Lori Egnew Hess Our parade is led off by the Kilt of Many Colors pipers  and the Ponchatoula High School ROTC Color Guard.
