With over 100 entries so far, they expect this to be the largest St Patrick's parade ever. It is possible that we will start a few minutes before Noon.

No rain date, this parade is RAIN OR SHINE
The new shirts are printed and ready for pick up. I have lots of sizes made up, but it's first come, first served. I will also have them at the parade at 11am Saturday. If you want to pick your shirt up before then, come to Damm Music. If you pick up early, you half to promise that you'll show up Saturday, rain or shine.
Songs & Kazoos:
As in the past, we will go through each song 3 times, first on Kazoo, then singing, then one more time on kazoo. Then the drums will play a bit and we'll go to the next song. Kazoos will be handed out the morning of the parade. Same songs as last year:
1) When the Saints Go Marching In
2) Yankee Doodle
3) God Bless America
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.
Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday, March 11th.
