The announcement about the Lake Ozark Parade is below:

After input from local health officials, after reviewing recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and in talking with city of Lake Ozark officials, the Bagnell Dam Strip Association decided that for public health considerations the parade would be cancelled for the first time in 35 years.

Other communities in Missouri have cancelled similar events this weekend. Universities and colleges have cancelled conference basketball tournaments, the NCAA has cancelled March Madness, the Missouri Senate has adjourned for two weeks, and the list of cancellations is growing on fears that the virus will spread farther than the single confirmed case in St. Louis.

BDSA and Lake Ozark officials apologize for any inconvenience the decision has caused. They encourage residents to follow CDC recommendations and urge residents and visitors to use common sense in dealing with the issue.

We all look forward to the 2021 St. Patrick’s Parade.

St. Patrick's Day is just around corner and what better way to spend the day than a parade! The Lake of the Ozarks St. Patrick's Day Parade will take place on March 14, 2020 at 1:00 pm on the historic Bagnell Dam Strip at Lake of the Ozarks Missouri.

Deck the whole family out in green, grab the lawn chairs and head out to Bagnell Dam Strip for an afternoon of family fun watching the various floats, cars, motorcycles and yes even boats as they make trip along the Strip. And who knows you might even score some candy!

Do you or your group/organization have a boat, float, car, truck, motorcycle, etc. that you would like to enter the Lake of the Ozarks St. Patrick's Day Parade? You can download the official entry form and return it to the Bagnell Dam Strip Association no later than March 9, 2020. For more information you call 573.280.5477 or email jcarroll88.jc@gmail.com.

Please be careful driving down Bagnell Dam Blvd before the event while floats are lining up. The road will be shut down at 12:45 and re-open around 3:00. You can exit or enter Hwy H.H. by using Hwy 242 and traffic will be let through at gaps in the parade.
