Mario’s Restaurant, 4222 Second Avenue Detroit, MI 48201 

10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. (Doors open at 9:45 a.m.)

Please note that the parade will start at 12:30 p.m.

Mario’s is set to provide us with a top-notch brunch menu – complete with drink specials.  The event will feature music for a sing-a-long presented by our very own Cahill & Murphy as well as snappy commentary from our Co-MCs. Our MCs this year will be Michigan Court of Appeals Justice and former ISIAL President Mike Riordan, attorney Fred Lauck, and former State Senator Bruce Patterson.

A must-see to this year’s entertainment program will be appearances from the Maid of Erin Court, the Court of St. Brigid, and the parade Grand Marshal, Brian Dunleavy.  Also expected to attend will be plenty of lawyers, judges, elected leaders, and dignitaries from the Detroit Irish-American community.

We will also feature our annual raffle for the ISIAL scholarship fund.
