Our Dearborn Movers March in the Detroit St. Patrick’s Day Parade
For our March 85th anniversary celebration event, and also to celebrate our own Irish heritage our team of Dearborn movers marched in the 56th annual Detroit St. Patrick’s Day Parade. This great parade heads down Michigan Avenue in Detroit, though Corktown, Detroit’s oldest neighborhood. Hosted by the United Irish Societies, the parade attracts over 65,000 people downtown every year and brings the city to life.
Before the parade, Corrigan employees had a lot of fun decorating the 1929 Ford Model AA truck. An Irish castle was created out of wardrobe boxes for the bed of the truck. The rails of the truck bed were decorated with various shamrocks and green garland to add a nice festive touch to the truck. When all was said and done, the truck looked great and fit in perfectly into the parade.
The parade itself was a great time. Corrigan had a good sized group of employees marching, with several family members and children in attendance as well. We even had a dog marching with us, temporarily painted green for the holiday. The 1929 truck was a big hit in the parade, as several onlookers ran into the street to get their photos taken with the truck before it passed on by. All in all, our Dearborn movers had a great time participating in the parade. We might just have to come back again next year!
Up next for April is the Novi Art Show! Look for us at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi on April 12th!
