Getting their Green out!Colorado Greyhound Adoption kicked off their 2014 event season with the Colorado Springs St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, March 15th.
For years, CGA has participated in the St. Patrick's Parade in the Springs. The crowd loves to see the Greys all dressed up in their St. Patty's finery.
"Thanks to everyone who turned out for the St. Patrick's Parade in the Springs! I hope everyone still had a Greyt time." Becky, CGA Event Coordinator
CGA Parade Volunteer Information
Don't forget to dress up your hounds and yourselves in St. Patrick's attire. Green balloons will be available to attach to the pups. In years past, volunteers have found parking a couple of blocks east of Tejon most convenient.
Because of the 5K on Tejon and Cache la Poudre, police officers will not let parade participants into the staging area before 11 am. Therefore, volunteers for CGA should meet at the staging #65 at Williamette and Tejon after 11 am but about 30 minutes prior to the start of the parade.
The parade kicks off at noon. This year, the participants in front and in back of our group are not loud noise makers to make things a little easier. The parade route is approximately 2 ½ miles long and typically lasts about 1 ½ hours.
