There is one month left to apply to be Queen of Hudson’s 8th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The deadline is midnight, Monday, February 20. The criteria for any applicant is that she has some Irish heritage, be a Canadian citizen of the Greater Montreal area, be aged 18 to 30 years, and be willing to attend parade-linked functions during March, including being a special guest at the Montreal parade Sunday, March 19. And of course, the Queen and Court will reign over Hudson’s Parade Saturday, March 18.
The young lady lucky enough to be crowned Queen will be showered with gifts from sponsors such as Kennedy Celtic Boutique, Cunninghams Pub, Whitlock Golf Club, Le Cozy Café, Hollandia Florists & Salon Mauve. The Parade organizing committee will also present the winner a check for $500. We proudly announce that Le Cozy Café and Whitlock Golf Club will be organizing the Queen’s event at Whitlock, 128 Côte St. Charles.
Judges will evaluate the contestants on confidence and public speaking, community involvement and spirit, crowd participation, and a specific question or two that will be given to all candidates beforehand. All entries must be made online at www.hudsonparade.com on the Queen application page.
