It’s almost that time again – Atlanta’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. This gala parade, dating back to 1858, will be held Saturday, March 11th, in Midtown Atlanta. A fun event with emphasis on children and families, it features over 200 units including clowns, floats, bands, dancers, drill teams, various rescue organizations and more. Adopt A Greyhound Atlanta has been a popular participant in this event for decades. It’s a great opportunity to meet and mingle with other Greyhound owners and show off your favorite hounds to the crowd. This year, like last year, both AAGA and Southeastern Greyhound Adoption (SEGA) have requested that the two organizations be grouped together. That makes the Greyhound contingent even more impressive!
So, PLAN TO COME OUT AND MARCH WITH US! No experience required…and you’ll have a Greyt time! Just be there by 11:30 AM to check in at the corner of West Peachtree and 17th Street. (When you check in, parade volunteers will guide you to the Greyhounds.) The parade will kick off at 12 noon.
If you don’t have a Grey of your own but would like to participate in the parade, check with Carl. AAGA will no doubt have available hounds who will be happy to let you take them for a walk.
