|UPDATE: Due to liability issues, we have been informed you must be a member of the IWCWV in order to participate in these 3 events. We will have membership forms available, so seek out a club member.|
OK, Folks, here's what I have for St Patrick's Day events:
Saturday the 10th- Sellwood St. Pat's Parade hosted by St Agatha school, 7960 SE 15th Ave, 97202. Parade starts at noon, so be there at 11:30 for staging. This is about a mile on level ground. If you are not a IWCWV club member, you need to sign a hild-harmless agreement. Our insurance will not cover you in the event of an incident.
Saturday the 17th- Kells Irish Festival in Portland. The IW booth will open at 11am and will go to 3pm. You must be a club member to participate. We will be meeting early (only way to get good parking) and go for breakfast. Will then go to the booth and set-up.
Remember to bring cotton for your dog's ears. And also note- even though we ask every year, the noise level increases, so if your dog isn't comfortable in loud, crowded situations, better not bring him/her.
Sunday, the 18th- Hollywood neighborhood parade. Forgot the directions, will post later. Starts at noon, be there by 11:30 for staging. This is an easy mile and a half walk on level ground through a neighborhood of beautiful homes. We always have a good crowd along the parade route even in bad weather. A hold-harmless agreement needs to be signed for any non-club members that wish to aprticipate.
NOTE the 1 hour later start time this year.
