Rosemount’s premiere community celebration returns at the end of July with Leprechaun Days.
There are a few changes to this year’s schedule required by construction projects. Wet ‘n’ Wild Day has been canceled because of work near Jaycee Park, but it will return in 2018. The Blarney Stone Hunt has been moved to Erickson Park. And the Grande Day Parade has a new route: 145th Street from Shannon Parkway to Cameo Avenue.Here are some of the major events.
