Welcome to the 35th Wearin' of the Green, St. Patrick's Day Parade!
As we begin preparations for the 2020 event, we want to emphasize that insurance requirements have changed from previous years. We no longer have substantial faith in our float captains to control participant activities. Each float will be required to provide a Special Events Policy covering participation in the parade either through your own insurance or via our insurance company, Blumberg & Associates. As a participant, here is the range of coverage you should budget for:
Mini Float (1-19 riders): $300
Regular Float (20-30 riders): $550
Super Float (31-50 riders): $575
Tandem Float (51-100 riders): $650
