Volunteers Needed to Carry Pride Flag in Parade



Green won't be the only color in Beale Street's annual St. Patrick's Day parade on Saturday, March 12th. This year, volunteers from Mid-South Pride will carry a 100-foot rainbow flag in the procession.

As you might expect, it takes a lot of folks to carry such a large piece of fabric. Mid-South Pride is seeking at least 30 volunteers to hold the flag and throw beads to the crowd. They also have a limited supply of beads, so donations of beads will be accepted.

For more on volunteering or the parade, check out the event's Facebook page.
