Organizers of Girardville’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade are putting out a call for participants for the upcoming event.
This year’s parade will take place on Saturday, March 25, starting at noon. But one thing struck us as odd about this year’s announcement looking for parade participants. In it, parade organizers say this famous Schuylkill County tradition is now known simply as the Girardville Parade.
However, that same announcement also calls it by its previous name, the Girardville St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
And just like previous versions of itself, it’s happening AFTER St. Patrick’s Day. If there’s inclement weather, it’ll be held on April 1 instead of March 25.
We’re pretty sure they could call this parade by any name they wanted and people will still flood Girardville to check it out.
Call Goes Out for Girardville St. Patrick’s Day Parade Participants
The theme of this year’s parade in Girardville is “Honoring Volunteer Firemen” and it’ll feature 5 divisions.
Parade organizers are currently looking for more participants. It wants floats, vendors, and individual participants to come be part of the parade.
After the parade, a block party will be held at Hibernian House, Beech and Line streets, in Girardville.
More information about the parade – including sponsorships and buying official parade T-shirts – can be found at its website.
