The Royal Oak St. Patrick’s Day parade is a family event, with a large community spirit, and collaboration with our downtown businesses. This tradition, which made its debut in 1999, will feature festive parade floats, marching bands, community organizations, and more than a few mischievous, pointy-eared creatures dancing through the city’s popular downtown area.

Best Appearance in Royal Oak St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Breakout Escape Rooms team entertained the crowds with juggling, choreographed hula hooping and riding on the shoulders of tiiiiiny leprechauns. Breakout said, “We had so much fun and the weather was perfect! Making people smile is what we do every day and we love being involed in the community events where we can entertain families of all ages who may not be familiar with our style of fun-making. We truly had the luck of the Irish on our side, the rain held off till later in the day.”
