The O'Brien Park gazebo stands out against a winter sunset. Snow can be seen on the ground.

Keep up with Parker news and happenings with our list of five things to know for March.

Go Green with St. Patrick’s Day Activities: 

Lucky the Leprechaun is coming back to Parker! Our holiday friend will be strolling (and hiding) around Mainstreet from noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays, March 12 and 19. While in Town, Lucky will also hide 17 shamrock signs around Parker trails, parks, the downtown area and Town facilities.

If you spot Lucky or any of his shamrocks hidden around Parker, take a photo and share it on the Town’s Facebook page by 10 a.m. March 21 to be entered into a prize drawing. 

For more information, visit the Community Events page.

Full Calendar of Cultural Performances: 

Parker Arts is saving a seat for you. National acts, family entertainment and a variety of musical performances are set to take the PACE Center and Schoolhouse stages this month.

Purchase tickets for The Comedy Zone with Alex Elkin and De Kelley, Friday Night Jazz: CJRO Presents 2B3, Parker Symphony Orchestra: Beethoven, Family Discovery Series: Tall, Tall Tales by Millibo Art Theatre and more upcoming performances from Parker Arts here.

Where to Find Snow Resources:

March can be one of the snowiest months of the year, so it’s a good time to read up on Town storm response. 

The Snow and Ice Control Policy, Snow Removal Priority System Map, and other related resources are listed on the Snow Operations webpage.  

And as a reminder, Priority 3 – Residential Roads are only cleared if six or more inches of snow fall.
