Saint Patrick’s Day began as a religious holiday in Ireland for Irish Catholics. In America, it has become a day to celebrate Irish heritage and culture. Wanting to celebrate East Tennessee’s rich Irish heritage and acknowledge the role of Irish immigrants and Americans of Scots-Irish descent have played in the history of Knoxville, Josh & Chandle Turbyville and Christy Watkins brought the St. Patrick’s Day Parade back to Knoxville.
