Howdy y’all! This week feels like it’s lasting about a hundred years, but I think it’s because there is so much to look forward to this weekend. Saturday is the best holiday of the year, Paddy’s Day! I think I’ve been looking forward to it since last year.
Here’s a leprechaun doing a jig, to haunt your dreams.
Anyway! The parade lineup this year is looking great! Find a list of all of the participants here. It starts at 11:30am and will end sometime around 1pm. My fingers are crossed that we have good weather this year to make up for the deluge last year (although it did not stop me from watching the parade in full). Here’s the parade route:
I watched from Eyre Square last year, and it was a great place to see everything! Plus, there’s a stage set up at the square and a carousel for the kiddos.
On Sunday there is a Charity Cycle that takes place in the city with the Coke Zero bikes. This is a family friendly event and promises to be a lot of fun.
Okay people. Most importantly, be safe. Stick with your friends and please drink responsibly (if you choose to do so).
