St. Patrick's Day Festivities Saturday at Webb Lake

Monday, March 12, 2018 | BurnettWire |

The famed Webb Lake St. Patrick’s Day events will be held all day Saturday, March 17, featuring an early afternoon parade on a one-mile-long route on Cty H through Webb Lake.

Reigning over the 28th annual parade and festivities will be the St. Patrick’s Day Queen, who will be crowned Friday evening at the Lumberjack Saloon and Eatery. Everyone in attendance Friday night can cast a vote for their favorite queen candidate.

The coronation event can be a four-hour affair that starts around 4 or 5p Friday with the actual crowning happening somewhere between 8 and 9.

Who can be queen for the weekend? Candidates may be young or not so young. It all depends on who shows up and the amount of campaigning they do. The queen candidates start their campaigns on Thursday, going from bar to bar to introduce themselves. 

The grills will be fired up to cook brats and burgers, serving indoors and outside too. Bands will be playing at the bars and the party will last well into the evening. Most of the bars have drink and food specials throughout the day.

Participating establishments include the Cabaret, Gliders Bar and Grill, Lumberjack Saloon and Eatery, Northwoods Bar, Rosenthal’s Restaurant and Bar, Oak Ridge Inn, The Shop Bar and Grill and the Local Bar at A&H.

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade starts at 1p Saturday at the Lumberjack Saloon and Eatery and travels about a mile through greater downtown Webb Lake, with crowds along most of the route. “It’s just fun and havoc all day,” says a bartender at the Cabaret.

Parking is limited and parade goers tend to arrive early. If you get there after 11a you may need to park on the edge of town and walk in.
