Get out your Green!Colorado Greyhound Adoption kicks off their 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.
So wear the colors of the Irish - GREEN, orange and white.
We're hoping for a big turnout and the weather should be just about perfect! Becky says that Jaspar will be wearing a top hat with green ribbon, and a green and white lei. So find your green and come join the fun.

The staging area (map) will not open until 11 am. To reduce wait time, volunteers will meet at 11:30 am.
Our staging spot (#91) is on the west side of Tejon Street in the middle of the block between Monument and Dale Streets. .
The parade route is approximately 2 1/2 miles and typically lasts about 1 1/2 hours starting at noon.
Keep your greyhounds safety in mind.
Greyhounds walking in the parade should be of the nature that noise, crowds, excitement, and other animals will not frighten them. And they are able to walk the 2 1/2 mile parade route.
Remember to bring water, poop bags, and dress for the weather.
