Leadville's Historic Practice Parade Practices Cultural Inclusivity

Sep 20, 2017

For decades Leadville has celebrated the 6-month anniversary of St. Patrick's Day with a September parade.   

"Because why celebrate St. Patrick's Day once a year, when you could celebrate it twice?" - Luke Finken, parade organizer.

This year, the parade celebrated another immigrant heritage, recognizing Fiestas Patrias, the Independence of Central America from Spain.
