GiGi's Playhouse Annapolis • 129 Lubrano Drive, Suite L104, Annapolis, MD 21401
St. Patrick’s Day Parade
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is Sunday, March 8th and begins at 1pm. This is an open event for all Down Syndrome Connection & GiGi’s Playhouse families, friends, teachers, neighbors, etc. We would love to have a HUGE turn out this year!
We will assemble that morning at Maryland Hall around 11:00 am. We will be lined up (float #64 & #65) at that time and you have until 12 noon at the latest to meet up with us to sign your waiver to be able to walk with us. I will have some decorations and refreshments for everyone that morning while we are setting up.
Please feel free to pack snacks or lunch as it sometimes can take a while to start moving based on the line up number. Parking is not allowed along the parade route. I advise you to park in the Navy Stadium and take the shuttle to us. They have shuttles to take you back at the end of the parade. The parade goes from MD Hall to Ego Alley. My family (Runion’s) and I will pulling a trailer/float behind our truck that has several seats for anyone that may not be able to walk the entire route. We’d love for anyone to add to the parade in anyway they want. Be creative! Break out your shamrocks! Dress in your finest Irish gear! Send your message! Let’s have fun and celebrate our kiddos! As soon as I get the waivers, I will email if you want to sign beforehand.
Please let Vanessa Runion firstname.lastname@example.org know if you plan to attend for a head count. 🍀
(Please note that this is not a GiGi’s Playhouse drop off activity, parents must remain with their children/child at all times. The City of Annapolis requires participants to sign a waiver.)
