Wearin of the Green

1 year ago Friday, March 14, 2014 6:54:19 AM CDT March 14, 2014 Friday, March 14 2014 Mar 14, 2014 in Pat Shingleton Column

I named this parade, "The Wearin of the Green," in tribute to its annonymous author during the Irish Rebellion in 1798 and to further the beauty of the color - green. If you can't join us on the route, join us on WBRZ.com and ParadeGroup.com as we "stream" the ceremonies at 9:40am. For many years the spectators and participants dodged the rain, cold and flurries. According to our "Killarney Grand Marshals" of the past, the parade day weather often replicates the weather in "The Old Country." This has truly turned into a Hammett-Shingleton event with family memebers shouldering the burden to recognize our heritage in a great city. A special salute to out Grand Marshal - Col. Michael D. Edmonson of the Louisiana State Police.
