The 2023 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 8th annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl Saturday, March 18. The popular event was back in business as approximately 500 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. There was an inflatable play castle for the younger set as well as Jenga, beer pong and cornhole games for the adults.

Volunteers from the Natchitoches Boys’ and Girls’ Club staffed the poker run stations and helped out where needed. The Natchitoches Boys’ and Girls’ Club was the NYP’s Non-Profit partner for the event.

The pub crawl culminated at the riverbank stage where the pub crawlers enjoyed a band.
