Join the Utica Progressive Parade on
Saturday, March 25!

This Saturday, March 25th, come join Central New York Citizens in Action as we Parade for Progress as part of the official 2017 Utica St. Patrick’s Day Parade. As you know, the parade was canceled earlier this month due to the weather and has been rescheduled for this Saturday.

Members of all progressive and resistance groups are welcome to join us! We will have a float in the parade, expressing our theme of Patriotism and Solidarity: Unity for Our Community. Please bring signs that focus on uplifting and positive messages. This is our opportunity to let the community know what we stand FOR, not just what we are against. Wear red/white/blue clothing if you like, and put your pussy hats on! Please dress warmly. Feel free to bring appropriate signs. Please join us!

Details: We will be in the RED section, spot #26, between Stevens Swann Humane Society and the Erie Canal Chapter of Harley Owners. Please check in at Genesee & Newell (next to the First Source Federal Credit Union). Please come to our spot at 9:15. Take the arterial and exit at Burrstone Road. You can park behind the Bagel Grove on Burrstone Road. Carpool if you can! Oneida Street and Sunset Avenue will be open to travel to Burrstone and Pleasant Streets. Side streets leading to Genesee Street will be blocked. Bring non-perishables for Mother Marianne’s West Side Kitchen, which will be collected during the parade.
