Thousands from across the Midwest make the St. Patrick's Day activities at the Lake of the Ozarks on Saturday an annual tradition.

From the Parade on the Water and St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl to the downtown Laurie parade and coveted St. Patrick's Day Parade in Lake Ozark, residents and visitors alike enjoy sporting their green, wearing their "lucky shirts" and kicking off not only the tourist season at the Lake but also one of the first recreational boating excursions.

The largest event is the 28th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in Lake Ozark, which travels down Bagnell Dam Boulevard to the historic Strip near Bagnell Dam.
