The 15th Annual Mystic Irish Parade
Will be held on Sunday, March 25th, 2018
Parade kicks off at 1:00 p.m.

2017 Marching Order


Hooray, it looks like we got a huge break with the snow. The Mystic Irish Parade Foundation is proud to present the 2017 Parade Orders. As always, someone has to be in the front and someone has to be at the back.

Please review the orders and make a note of your Unit #. Please let everyone in your group know your Unit # this helps speed up the process in the lot.

Each unit, as in previous years, will have limited spots where your Unit spot is. We have extra parking in the lot and we will try fill that up as we go. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE talk to your group and let them know they will not all be able to park in the Unit # area. WE WILL HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE for anyone that does not like the space they are assigned. I don’t foresee this being an issue for most.

All Participants: Please ensure that you have a representative sign in at the tent in the muster lot. This ensures your organization gets the correct announcement when you pass the viewing stand. Also, there may be some slick spots in the lot, please drive and proceed with caution throughout the lot and route.

Judging: This year our judges will be positioned throughout the parade route. This will ensure they capture the whole parade. We also have several more judges this year.

PAID ORGANIZATIONS: Please ensure you pick up your payment at the sign in tent prior to step off.

Couple of Thoughts on Unit Placement:

1) Based on temperatures, I have tried to put as many of the youth groups in the front half of the parade. I am sure everyone understands why.
2) I always try to move the bands around each year. I can’t do it for everyone but do my best.
3) Due to volume of large floats and vehicles positions change.
4) Due to weather the seaport has not been able to get some equipment and materials out of the lot so some spaces are lost.

Thanks for your attention here. See you all tomorrow. Lets rock the Town Of Mystic and have some fun.
