GRRCC St Patrick's Day parade

We’re Parade Position #16!!

That means that we’ll start ON TIME this year!  It will NOT be a casual start this year.  We go at 11AM!!  If you’re walking with us this year, please get there early and be ready to go promptly at 11AM!!  Our float will be located *somewhere* near Tryon St. and 11th St.  WooHoo!!  The weather as of today says sunny, but cool.  So bundle up in green if you need to.

Everyone is Invited!

No need to register!  Just come wearing green with your Golden Retreiver, or with your love of Golden Retriever’s!  GRRCC will again march in the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in uptown Charlotte on Saturday, March 16, 2019. The parade begins at 11 a.m. The final starting location for us can change slightly depending on the parade size and our starting position. We will travel south on Tryon to 3rd Street, then travel east for several blocks, then walk back at our leisure to wherever we are parked.  The route is approximately one and a quarter mile.

**We will meet** in the grassy area at College Street & Phifer (between 9th and 10th Street) from 10:00 a.m to 10:45, where our dogs can socialize before the parade begins. For those that are first timers, though the parade starts at 11am, we may not start for 30 minutes or so, depending on where our position number is in the parade.  OUR POSITION IS #16!  WE WILL START PROMPTLY AT 11AM!!  Float will be located *somewhere* near Tryon and 11th.

Parking is available at the County Hall Marshall building just across from our meeting area.  If that lot is filled, there are other lots closer to 10th or 11th Street and there is some “on street” parking nearby.

We look forward to a fun event. If you have any questions you can email us at info@grrcc.com.

Once again, we’ll have our float for some of our senior Golden’s, and perhaps a few humans in their golden years, that are unable to make the walk on their own.  It’s on a first come first served basis to be on the float, and it only holds about 8-10 people and a few dogs that can’t do the walk.  So if you have any special needs, please ask to see the float coordinator during our social time before the parade.

If you need a St Patrick’s Day shirt, please check out our store.  We still have some limited availability in the 2 designs shown below, so check them out!
