Halloween morphed into Thanksgiving, which morphed into Christmas. Hardly time to get over one holiday before the next rears its head, eh?
Well, are you ready to think about St. Patrick's Day?
The Downtown Racine Corporation is. DRC is seeking entries for its second annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which will be held on Saturday, March 15.
Parade applications are available at DRC's office at 425 Main Street or download an application. Deadline is Feb. 22.
Last year Downtown Racine’s St. Patrick’s Day parade featured Irish and Celtic music, troubadours, leprechauns, pipe band music, floats, Irish dancers, Irish wolfhounds and much more. It drew thousands downtown to enjoy the festivities. Local organizations, businesses and clubs are encouraged to participate; there is no cost to be in the parade.
The parade will begin at noon at Main and State Streets and will travel south on Main to 8th Street. From there the parade will turn left to Lake Avenue and follow Lake Avenue back to Christopher Columbus Parkway.
