St. Patricks Day Parade-Details

St. Patricks Day is approaching and we are getting ready for our float. Here are the details on what we will be needing:

If you have volunteered to help decorate and/or ride/walk in the parade, please arrive at the staging area “A” which is on 4th Avenue, between 5th and 6th Sts, at 11am Monday. The parade starts at 1pm, so we will use this time to decorate the float.

Read the description of needs below, and let us know if you are able to bring any props. We will obtain any final needs based on what people already have.

We need 4 people willing to be on the “float” playing golf and looking like they are having fun doing it. We need a total of 5 people walking around and near the float as it makes its way in the parade. We need a Piper to lead the “float”.

Decorations: Since we are going with the golf theme, we need a green skirt to represent grass that goes on the outside of the trailer. The people on the float need huge and easy to see from far away golf clubs for 3 people to hold and swing. A bouncy ball or yoga ball to “hit” between them, and an oversized pennant style flag for the hole marker.

I would like as many St. Andrews Flags and Ireland flags as we can get as well. No Rampant Lions please. (the gold and red lion one).

Anyone that can show up Monday to help decorate will be very welcome!

Everyone on the float or walking in the parade needs to be kilted or otherwise dressed in Scottish attire please.

I am still talking about a banner for each side of the trailer that advertises our event. If that does no thappen we will need to make signs to say what we want to say. If I do not have the banners by the Friday before the Parade we will need to get the signs together quickly.
**Also, there is no parking along the parade route. You will need to find parking in a ramp or at a meter downtown, and walk in to the staging area.**
Thank you!!
