From up on my perch on my stilts, I could see smiling faces and hear laughter ringing through the streets. I saw a community- people young and old gathered together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. This parade is always close to my heart ever since I started clowning around with the Portlaoise Parade March 17th, five years ago.
As I handed out high fives and laughter by being who I am: a children’s entertainer, I realized that the biggest high five needed to go to the Portlaoise St. Patrick’s Day Parade committee and the businesses whose fundraising and support make it possible for this day to continue to be celebrated year after year. The committee being who they are- people passionate about the Laois community and Irish culture, won the well-deserved 1st prize in the Laois Arts, Culture and Heritage Awards. This is what makes me proud to be a part of this event, to be able to bring my passion for bringing laughter and smiles to people’s faces alongside the passion of the Laois community. Can’t wait for another great year! See you again March 17th!
