Celebrate St. PETrick’s Day in Downtown Ellijay

Come celebrate our pets in honor of St. Patrick’s Day in Downtown Ellijay on March 18, 2017!

Our annual St. Petrick’s Day Parade and Barking Lot party begins at 1:00. Dress yourself and your favorite pet in your finest St. Patricks Day attire and join the parade on McCutchen St. ( across from City Hall ) Pet parade walkers and pet contest participants must register at the pet check-in area in front of City Hall prior to 1:00pm. Walkers and groups will line up in front of the Ellijay Elementary School auditorium at noon. The parade will flow south on North Main Street, around the square to River Street, left on North Ave. and back to the school. 

The Barking Lot Party will be happening in the River Street Parking lot before and after the parade. Pet contests will take place after the parade in the “barking lot”. Other activities will include vendors, raffles, and green beer! Don’t forget to visit our Downtown Ellijay shops and restaurants.
