Volunteers Needed to Carry Pride Flag in Parade

Posted By on Wed, Mar 2, 2011 at 4:05 PM

Green won't be the only color in Beale Street's annual St. Patrick's Day parade on Saturday, March 12th. This year, volunteers from Mid-South Pride will carry a 100-foot rainbow flag in the procession.

As you might expect, it takes a lot of folks to carry such a large piece of fabric. Mid-South Pride is seeking at least 30 volunteers to hold the flag and throw beads to the crowd. They also have a limited supply of beads, so donations of beads will be accepted.

For more on volunteering or the parade, check out the event's Facebook page.

It takes a LOT of people to carry this flag!
