We want you!
We’re looking for volunteers, whether individually or in groups, to assist with the upcoming parade. Please read the information below to find out how you can help Plainfield’s Irish Parade become one of the best and most enjoyable parade around..
Primarily, we seek individuals who are age 18 or over to be parade marshals, but we also have limited availability of other positions (see below).
Basic Duties of Parade Marshals:
- Answer questions from spectators. (Don’t worry, we’ll help you with answers to commonly asked questions.)
- Be firm, but friendly. You’ll help keep the parade route clear of obstacles. For the safety of everyone, parade marshals will help maintain the curb line, preventing spectators from moving into the street.
- Be available from check-in at 10:00 a.m., until 3:00 p.m. (After some minor activities to return the streets to normal auto traffic)
- Be pleasant and helpful.
- Be willing to have fun. Most people who attend our parade are well-behaved. So, your job is often not very difficult, meaning you’ll have more fun.
