Bring a smile, a friend, and join us behind the Kidical Mass PDX banner for some parade fun! St. Agatha School in Sellwood has invited us to ride in their St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 16th and we need YOU to ride with us!
Facebook users can RSVP and connect in the Facebook event page.
Join us for bike decorating at the Sellwood Park playground (SE Miller St & SE 7th Ave, Portland, OR 97202) between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. We’ll have some decorations to share, but if you have ribbons, crepe paper, flowers, or anything else GREEN please bring it along. Snacks for sharing also very welcome. Costumes are great, too!
At around 11:30 a.m. we’ll ride four blocks over to SE 15th Ave & SE Miller St to be ready for the noon parade start.
We always ride at a kid-friendly pace and in a large group. No one will be left behind–the focus is on having fun! During the parade our pace will be even slower than usual. Riders should be able to ride in a line, to follow verbal directions, and to stop at stop signs. Helmets are required for those under 16, and recommended for all.
After the parade, stick around for the family-friendly festival: carnival, live music, Irish dancers, both authentic Irish food and local food cart vendors, and a beer garden. More info on the St. Agatha School festival here.
