Dallas gears up for big St. Patrick's Day weekend

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

Thousands of people will fill the streets along Greenville Avenue for Dallas' annual St. Patrick's Day celebration.

Three different events will take place on the street Saturday. The parade, scheduled to begin at 11 a.m., will kick off the day. The event has been revitalized this year and has been branded as "upscale" and renamed as "The Dallas St. Patrick's Parade on Greenville Avenue." Instead of a party that revolves around alcohol consumption it will focus on the family. The parade begins near Northwest Highway and will run south on Greenville Avenue to SMU Boulevard.

The Dallas Observer is sponsoring a concert at Energy Square that will be headlined by Snoop Dog. Tickets to see him are 15$ in advance and 20$ the day of. Gates open at noon. The "Lower Greenville Street Party" will be held throughout the day.

DART Service will be ramped up to accommodate all the crowds heading to the celebration. Beginning early Saturday morning, trains will run a 10 minute service from southbound Parker Road Station to northbound West End Station. Additional Red and Orange Line trains from Plano will run from 7 a.m. to 6:28 p.m.
