What are you doing the afternoon of March 17, say around 4 p.m.?
If you are in or near Hastings, come on down and join the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, the biggest little parade held in the city every year.
There are no entry fees, complicated sign up sheets and you don’t have to be good at marching, or even Irish.
You do have to be sporting something green. “Getting your green on” is required, “getting your silly on” is optional, and encouraged.
It’s just a chance to take a early spring break, have some fun, and march along with your friends and neighbors for a little more than two city blocks. Music is always provided by the marchers, including Mike Smith (pictured) setting the tempo with “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
Come to the street behind WBCH Radio a little before 4 p.m. and line up with everyone else who is lucky enough to have (or borrow) something green for the event.
The Grand Marshal this year is Emily Jasperse of the General Store on South Jefferson Street. Emily will lead the parade and lots of smiling faces.
