For the first time in #ShortestStPats Parade History, we're handing out a Golden Shamrock Award to the entrants who receive the most votes through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We're putting the decision on who has the best entry in the parade in your hands! 

HOW IT WORKS

  1. All voting will take place via social media – specifically: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – and is open to members of the public in attendance at the parade. (So encourage your friends to attend!)
  2. Parade entrants will be given a number and corresponding hashtag. CHECK OUT THE LIST OF PARADE ENTRANTS AND THEIR HASHTAGS IN THE TABLE BELOW!
  3. Votes are cast by posting a photo from the parade to either Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the hashtag of the entrant(s) you like best. 
  4. Voting opens at the start of parade (6:30 p.m.) and will end approximately one hour after the parade ends (8:30 p.m.).
  5. The entry with the most votes across the three social media accounts wins.

 AWARD

  1. Winner will be announced via social media on Friday, March 18.
  2. The winner will receive a one of a kind 18’x24’ sign declaring them to be the Golden Shamrock Winner, which they may display at their place of business, home and on future parade entries.
  3. The winner will receive automatic entry in the following year’s parade.
  4. In addition to everything listed above the winner will maintain bragging rights for an entire year, social media glory, and a minimum of fifteen minutes of local fame.
