The Bluegrass Irish Society was formed in 1980 and initiated the St. Patrick’s Day Parade as its first activity. The parade gained instant credibility when then Governor John Y. Brown and first lady Phyllis George Brown co-sponsored it and arranged to have Ed McMahon from the Johnny Carson Show to be our first Grand Marshal. The rest, as they say, is history.
