    You will have a great time and won't believe what little is asked from you. Yet, you are ESSENTIAL for helping to pull off one of the largest St. Patrick's Parades in the entire Country! Thank you a head of time!

    If you decide to be a Parade Marshal, you will be asked to walk the Parade and keep the units from slacking and the participants from getting run over. The last float is Desperado's. If you get tired during the Parade, you are welcome to ride on this float and it will also get you back to the Park Lane launch location immediately after the Parade. FYI: Twin Hills Ave. Parking Lot formerly Sam's Club but there is some new business occupying that location. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Park+Lane+Station,+Dallas,+TX&hl=en&sll=32.883119,-96.764767&sspn=0.013028,0.019205&z=17

    Parking is limited around the Parade Launch area. Suggest you park at any of the Dart Stations and take Dart Red line to the Park Lane Station and walk to 6852. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Park+Lane+Station,+Dallas,+TX&hl=en&sll=32.883119,-96.764767&sspn=0.013028,0.019205&z=17

    I've never been in a parade so what better way to remedy that than meeting new friends at my first RAK event! If you need another Parade Marshals to walk the parade...pick me! pick me!
