It’s going to be ‘Erin go brawn’ in Sanford this weekend

It turns out there just isn’t a pot of gold at the other stop of the rainbow. For folks in Sanford, they are going to find only a fire truck this St. Patrick’s Day weekend.  But if they can transfer it with their bare hands, then the treasure (a trophy) magically seems.

Historic Downtown Sanford hosts the 5th annual St. Paddy’s Day fest this weekend. To celebrate the snake-banishing patron saint of Eire, local companies and firemen are squaring off in a fireplace truck pull.

So whilst the Historic Downtown Sanford spot will be heaving with stay new music, foodstuff vehicles and vendors scattered among all the area’s bars and places to eat, the centerpiece occasion just may possibly be the truck pull. Just as partaking as a parade, we would wager.

Kicking off at 4 p.m., the truck pull will options teams making an attempt to pull a hearth truck 1 block down Palmetto Avenue. Winners get the aforementioned trophy and ever-elusive “bragging rights.” Teams will incorporate ones produced up with workers of community firms and teams of community firefighters.

Teams seeking to take part in this party have be built up of 10 men and women and need to register and spend a $100 signup charge. Proceeds from the truck pull will go to the Particular Demands Advocacy Program, which serves households in Sanford who assist small children with disabilities.

The  St. Paddy’s Working day Truck Pull & Road Competition requires location in the streets amongst Celery Town Craft and West Conclusion Investing Co. on Saturday, March 18, beginning at 4 p.m.
