Stamford Spring Events for the Whole Family

No. 1
Stamford St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Downtown Stamford goes green for the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade on Saturday, March 2 at noon. The Irish-American Cultural Society of Stamford named Stamford Health CEO Kathleen A. Silard this year’s grand marshal. She’ll lead the way for steppers, pipers and more. Make these ice cream sandwiches ahead of time for a post-parade playdate.

• cookie dough
• Green food coloring
• Lucky Charms
• Vanilla ice cream


  1. Put the pre-made cookie dough in a bowl and add green food coloring. Add as much as you need until the whole batch is green.
  2. Bake the sugar cookies per the instructions on the wrapper.
  3. Let the cookies cool completely.
  4. Take soft vanilla ice cream and scoop it on to the bottom side of one cookie.
  5. Place another cookie on top and place Lucky Charms in the ice cream around the entire edge.
