ST. PATRICK'S DAY PARADES

We love to dance in our community parades!

Each year OIDA dancers, families, and friends have the opportunity to march and dance in a local St. Patrick's Day parade! Last year we participated in the NE Neighborhood parade as well as the Hillsboro parade. We get dressed up in our best green/Irish/shamrock outfits for a super fun event showing our support for local Irish dance, music, and culture. OIDA's Performance Team members get to perform a few of their show pieces, and any of our dancers, little and big, beginner and advanced, are welcome to dance their way down the street for as long as they would like! There are fire trucks, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, Irish wolfhounds, bagpipers, and more. It's a super fun, family-friendly, and memorable event -- we are already counting down the days!
