Kelly is keen on having a Mumstown float/Entry in the Drogheda 2008 St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The sucess of this entry depends on us – the Participants!
How many of you would be interested in walking through the town in the parade representing Mumstown, distributing sweets and balloons to the onlooking crowd???
It has been proposed that we use the parade as an advertising opportunity for the Banardo’s Big Toddle and therefore use the same theme for both.
We are thinking of having a Teddy Bear’s Picnic theme. Both Parade and Toddle participants would walk, push, tricycle etc etc carrying their favourite teddy bears or soft toy. We would also have a picnic afterwards for the Toddle. This is the basic idea. We would make this a really fun day for both kids and parents!
More details will follow as we see how many participants for the parade we can encourage out for the 17th!
Come on Mumstown! Let’s celebrate St. Patrick’s together!February 19, 2008 at 1:54 pm #55851JMumMember

I’d love to join in but would need more details. C will only sit in a buggy for a short amount of time before he has a meltdown, so not sure how practical the whole thing would be. 🙄
I would also love to give a hand, if there’s anything I can do just let me know. 🙂February 20, 2008 at 8:31 am #55901AnonymousInactive
Ok, I’m in. I think it would be great for such a community based site to be involved with a community parade like this AND dd is obsessedwith parades ever since we went to Disneyland so being in one would be a dream come true for her!! 😆 😆February 20, 2008 at 9:33 am #55903munchinParticipant
