The Delano District turned green Saturday for the 13th annual St. Patrick’s Parade. It’s a celebration that brings thousands to the Delano District which means more visibility for the businesses there.
Thousands lined the streets for the 13th annual Delano St. Patrick’s Parade.
“There’s so much to do, there’s shops, there’s food, there’s family events, there’s just so much to do,” said Teresa Watson of Littleton, Colorado.
Everywhere you look there’s the color green. Businesses in the are seeing green too.
“Last year, we had March Madness in town, and it was amazing how much business we did this year without March Madness. We’re breaking records from last year,” said Lance Minor, Founder of Aero Plains Brewing.
“A lot of the businesses are having parties so they are keeping people in Delano it’s obviously a big money maker for the businesses here,” said Kendice Taltly, President of Delano United.
The Delano District website lists nearly 50 businesses in the district. Talty says the parade helps give those businesses exposure.
“The streets are shut down for a little while, but it encourages people to get out and explore the area,” said Talty.
In hopes people won’t wait until next year’s parade to return.
“It makes our businesses very visible and it lets you know Delano is a great place to visit seven days a week,” said Talty.
Organizers said about 10 to 15,000 people attended this year’s parade.
