Denver St. Patrick's Day Parade - Join Us!

UPDATE (3 pm MT): Thanks to those that emailed with interest to jump of the Rapids float for the Parade. We are full, but look forward to seeing many of you in the crowd.
Rapids fans,

The Rapids will be the only sports team in town entering a float in this Saturday's Denver St. Patrick's Day Parade, and we have limited space for any volunteer that wants to participate.

According to the organizers, the Denver St. Patrick’s Day Parade bears the reputation as the largest parade west of the Mississippi River and one of the largest in the United States. Over 230 individual units mass together in a parade of 10,000 plus participants. Winding through the streets of Lower Downtown Denver on the Saturday before St. Patrick’s Day, over 200,000 spectators enjoy a three hour plus parade.

The Rapids’ float will be a mini-representation of the new Rapids Supporters Terrace, giving spectators a sample of the new Terrace at Dick's Sporting Goods Park this season.

1) Must wear a Rapids burgundy home jersey.
2) Fans 21 and over are preferred.
3) Must be willing to chant, sing, throw Rapids prizes to the crowd, and have fun!

Interested? Send an email to with the word "Float" in the subject line by 4 pm Friday. Give us your name, age and why you think you'd make a good float participant. Only a limited number of spots are available. We’ll reply with the meeting time and location.

Thanks. And even if you are not on the float, look for us on the route this Saturday, March 13th!
