St. Patrick's Day is just around corner and what better way to spend the day than a parade! The Lake of the Ozarks St. Patrick's Day Parade will take place on March 15, 2014 at 1:00 pm on the historic Bagnell Dam Strip at Lake of the Ozarks Missouri.

Deck the whole family out in green, grab the lawn chairs and head out to Bagnell Dam Strip for an afternoon of family fun watching the various floats, cars, motorcycles and yes even boats as they make trip along the Strip. And who knows you might even score some candy!

You can download the official entry from and return it to the Bagnell Dam Strip Association no later than March 7, 2014.
