It's almost that time—to get out the green, line the street, settle in for the South Side Irish Parade.
The parade committee is hosting a pre-parade fundraiser party at 115 Bourbon Street on Saturday, Feb. 22 from 3 to 8 p.m.
The event along with the attached raffle is the main source of funds for the parade which requires significant funding and is operated completely by volunteers.
Tickets are $30 per person and include a buffet, beer and wine, soft drinks and performances from The Matt Ladd Band and Sean & Charlie.
A raffle will also be held at the party. Tickets are $50. The grand prize is $10,000 and additional prizes of $2500, $1000 and $400 will be awarded. Tickets purchased by Jan. 15 will be eligible for a $250 early bird drawing.
