St Patrick's Parade 1 PM, Tractor Show 2 PM, and Heroes Pull for Special Olympics 2:30 PM - Shawnee, KS - March 11

The GKCTCC is participating in the Shawnee, KS St Patrick's Day Parade, having a static tractor display, and is sponsoring the Heroes Pull on March 11th. What better way to show off our GREEN tractors than on St Patrick's day in a local parade. Jon has arranged for parking at KCAS, 12400 Shawnee Mission Pkwy, and they have agreed to let our tractor club park trucks and trailers in their parking lot the day of the St. Patrick's Day parade, Sunday March 11. They have asked we use the north side of their parking lot .... or at least away from the employee entrance located on the east side. This business, which used to be the GM Training Center and is located on the NE corner of Shawnee Mission Pkwy and Long Ave. Parade lineup begins on Johnson Dr at 1130 hrs and parade begins at 1300 hrs so arrive at the parking lot to unload and prep accordingly. If you have questions let Jon, Justin, or Jay know.

The First Baptist Church of Shawnee has agreed to let us park our tractors in their parking lot following the parade. This parking lot is just west of Flint St and the Splash Cove where the Heroes Pull will occur. The parking lot and tractors will be within line of sight of the pull and likely to draw public over to view the
tractors. Google satellite map attached, one labeled with pull location (in red), and tractor parking location (blue).
