Entries now being accepted for St. Chatty’s Day Parade

Posted

The Shamrock Society is now accepting parade entries for the sixth annual St. Chatty’s Day Parade celebrating the tradition of St. Patrick’s Day. 

This exciting event will be held in downtown Chattanooga on the Southside on March 16, with proceeds to benefit Chattanooga’s Kids on the Block.
The Shamrock Society invites community businesses and organizations to participate in the citywide event by sponsoring or entering a float in the parade to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
The exact parade route will be announced soon. To participate: Parade fee $25; and sponsorship, $250 to $2,500. All Proceeds from the St. Chatty’s Day Parade will benefit Chattanooga’s Kids on the Block.

The Shamrock Society was formed in 2013 consisting of community leaders and businesses in the Chattanooga community. The society wanted to host a family-friendly event, encourage community involvement, and give back to the community by donating proceeds from the parade to Chattanooga’s Kids on the Block. CKOB is a nonprofit educational puppetry troupe whose mission is using the power of puppetry to educate children on social concerns and differences, giving them the skills to stay safe and healthy.

“We are very excited about the success of the “St. Chatty’s Day” Parade. The response from our community, parade participants, and local business and community leaders has been wonderful,” said Kelly Williams, CKOB executive director. “This is the sixth year for the St. Patrick’s Day parade to be held in Chattanooga, and we are hopeful that the parade will continue to grow into a community favorite and will be as infamous as the Savannah, Georgia, celebration with large floats, big balloons, marching bands, and a town ready to celebrate the Irish holiday.”
If you would like to join in on the celebration and help spread green cheer all around Chattanooga for St. Patrick’s Day, contact Kelly Lowry at 423-757-5259 or email kellyl@kidsontheblock.net for more details.
