What better way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day than with a parade?

Two parades in the St. Louis area were en route today: one in Dogtown and one in downtown St. Louis.

The Dogtown parade began at 10 a.m. Saturday and ran through Tamm Avenue.

The downtown St. Louis parade began at 1 p.m. Saturday on Market Street at 20th Street at Union Station and headed toward the Arch.

These parades prompted several road closures. A portion of Clark Street was closed near Ballpark Village. A portion of Chestnut, between 18th and 14 Streets, was be closed -- that's on the other side of Market Street from Scottrade Center.

Several ramps were also closed, including Chestnut and 20th Street, 6th Street, 3000 Market Street, and 21st and Market Street.

Those ramp closures started at 7 a.m. and remained closed most of the day.

If you couldn't make it out to the downtown parade, KMOV streamed it live on Facebook, our news app and on our website, KMOV.com. 

A third St. Patrick's Day parade took place in Cottleville in St. Charles County.

Cottleville was hosting its 10th annual "Run for the Helmet," followed by a parade. The run began at 8 a.m. and the parade kicked off at noon.
