H OUMA — Houma’s Irish-Italian parade is set to roll on St. Patrick’s Day — March 17 — but organizers say its needs more riders.
S.P. LaRussa, who helped found the parade, said the parade will start at 1 p.m. and disband later at the Town Hall on Barrow Street.
A post-parade celebration at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center will feature Irish cabbage and Italian sausage dishes.
The fee to ride is $200 per person, but children accompanied by a guardian can ride for $100.
Riders must buy their own throws. Anyone interested in riding may contact LaRussa at (985) 872-0444.
