|St. Patrick's Day Festival||
This annual event is organized by the Irish Congress of Southern California whom honors our service each year by appointing Firefighters to lead-off the parade. It is a well deserved opportunity to celebrate with family, friends and our neighbors. Some say the celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day by the Fire Service has been a tradition dating back to the early 1800's. The Emerald Society encourages you to share with us this time honored tradition with a day of fellowship and celebration. As always the Fire Service participation in the Parade consists of both a marching component and rolling stock. This year the Irish Congress has respectfully requested we begin keeping track of Agency’s that participate so they can more formally communicate thanks for your support and participation. Please complete the2009 St Patrick’s Day Fire Service Parade Entry Form for your Marching and Apparatus entries. Parade entries are due back to the Emerald Society no later than February 28th, 2009. Once we receive your Parade Entry you will be contacted back with further details as well as provided a Staging Plan.
