Join the Barony (and our most favorite mercenaries, Clovenshield) as we march in the most charming neighborhood parade in Pittsburgh! Spend the morning with us as we march in the Lawrenceville Memorial Day parade, ending in the historic and beautiful Allegheny Cemetery.
Garb/armor required, because we are showing off to thousands of east-end Pittsburghers. Let’s drum up some new folks while strutting our stuff in style! Clovenshield is again leading the parade logistics, and will be providing the gorgeous float, for those who wish to ride and wave.
Fighters, you will never be more lauded and appreciated… come out and flaunt your skills for the not-yet-newbies. Not a fighter? Great, come walk or ride, waving at babies and blowing kisses to veterans – this demo is a blast!
If parading isn’t your style, we have fun for you, too! At the end of the parade is a community picnic, with food trucks and entertainment, and the Barony has a table! Help Lord Ronan talk to interested folks there!
Need more reason to come? Ice cream at the end is on the Baroness!
You can win the Skirmish of Grant Street in the Great Battle for Pittsburgh!
You don’t actually have to walk… ride on the float and wave to the crowd!
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.
Selfies with WWII veterans!
When the drunk folks shout a certain beer slogan at you and our whole float shouts back “DILLY DILLY!!” watch them… Lose. Their. Minds.
Blowing kisses to the toddlers, and their sweet little faces staring in awe.
The BALLISTA! Even better, watching the tipsy revelers freak out and duck when you swing it around to point at them!
No one will ever cheer louder for you when you win your battle than a drunk Pittsburgher.
Possible tipsy guest appearance by Svava’s mom!
You don’t want your Baroness to be guarded solely by mercenary scum*… do you…?
BONUS! Free pizza and revelry afterwards at Bella Notte!
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!
Greetings, I am pleased to inform you all that the BMDL has once again been invited to marche in the Pittsburgh St Patrick’s Day Parade. Grab your garb, don your armor and come down to help represent the Barony.
The float is still the same as above (upgrade ideas always welcome). We march, we show off our garb and our crafts and when the parade slows up a bit, our armored fighters give the crowds a heck of a display. Last year the AE Crowned Prince fought almost every step of the way and the crowds went crazy.
We start on Liberty Ave, the exact cross street will be given to us in about 2 weeks. The route is about 1 1/2 miles to the Blvd at Stanwix.
There is space on the trailer so you don’t have to walk the whole way.
Children are welcome. Boffers, too.
Garb is required. Armor is optimal. Fighting demos in front of hundreds of rowdy spectators is quite the rush.
Come on and join the fun.
Also, for those who use the Facebook, Yuengerz has created an event here:
