Believe 271 2020 St. Patrick's Day Parade

The Believe 271 Foundation Officers and Board of Directors continue to share its message that "No One Fights Alone" at this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Utica on Saturday, March 14th at 10:00 a.m. Line-up at 9:00 a.m.

In our 6th year of participation and we want to make it the best yet. We plan to have a Believe 271 themed float for the parade and are hoping to fill Genesee Street with more than 300+ "Believers" walking behind the float. "Believers" are further defined as firefighters, ladies auxiliary, family members and friends of the fire service. We are asking all participants to wear one of our NEW 2020 specially designed St. Patrick’s Day shirts. These black (tee shirt, long sleeved tee, crew sweatshirt and hoodie) are available in both youth and adult sizes. You will note that the adult items (except the tee shirts) will have a full right sleeve design in addition. We have a new vendor this year, please note when placing your orders.
