2022 NYP St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl Brings the Party to Downtown!

Natchitoches’ Front Street was transformed into a rollicking street party as the Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce’s Natchitoches Young Professionals hosted its 7th annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl Saturday, March 19. The popular event was back in business as over 400 pub crawlers, many in colorful costumes, walked the length of Front Street. The partygoers visited businesses along Front St. to draw a card for the event’s poker run as well as enjoy food and drink specials.

Sixteen volunteers from Natchitoches’ Womens’ Resource Center staffed the poker run stations and helped out where needed. The Center was the NYP’s Non-Profit partner for the event, garnering $1,000.00 which will be used to train a nurse in using an ultrasound machine. The additional trained nurse will mean that no woman in the parish, or surrounding area, will have to wait more than a week for an ultrasound.

The pub crawl culminated at the riverbank stage where entertainment was provided by area band “Deaf Jam”.
