  • The Parade will step off no later than 2:00 pm. Any units not ready by this time will be asked to go to the end of the Line of March.
  • The throwing, handing, giving, etc of anything to spectators from Parade participants is strictly forbidden.
  • Banners, placards, signs etc. are limited to identifying your group and/or appropriate to honor St. Patrick and our Irish American culture. No pamphleteering for persons, parties or causes.
