Top 10 Reasons to March with the Barony in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Tomorrow (3/16)

  1. You can win the Skirmish of Grant Street in the Great Battle for Pittsburgh!
  2. You don’t actually have to walk… ride on the float and wave to the crowd!
  3. Guys. Guys…. We are between the Jimmy Buffet fan club, the Ghostbusters cosplayers, and the Derby Brats – under 17 Roller Derbyers… doesn’t get much better than that.
  4. Selfies with WWII veterans!
  5. When the drunk folks shout a certain beer slogan at you and our whole float shouts back “DILLY DILLY!!” watch them… Lose.  Their.  Minds.
  6. Blowing kisses to the toddlers, and their sweet little faces staring in awe.
  7. The BALLISTA! Even better, watching the tipsy revelers freak out and duck when you swing it around to point at them!
  8. No one will ever cheer louder for you when you win your battle than a drunk Pittsburgher.
  9. Possible tipsy guest appearance by Svava’s mom!
  10. You don’t want your Baroness to be guarded solely by mercenary scum*… do you…?

BONUS! Free pizza and revelry afterwards at Bella Notte!

Some Details:

  • Meet in the strip district at 20th and Liberty between 9 -9:30am
    (There’s actually quite a bit of parking in that area… There’s a bunch at 21st and Smallman, and look around 18th-21st streets, Penn Ave, and the side streets, Liberty will be closed. You’ll need to walk a couple blocks to the float)
  • Wear garb of course, but you can deck yourself out with green and shamrocks, too – we  encourage it!
  • Very family friendly. Every kid that has come with us has enjoyed themselves – and sometimes people throw candy!
