For info to those who like taking in parades -  Quite possibly the biggest loyalist parade of the year is being held tomorrow in Airdrie.  Parade starts at 12 noon.

Over 50 bands plus ABOD members - approx 4000 on parade.

Probably get the usual Bears den comments but i was thinking of heading over to this.

Bastard of a time though cos my boy doesn't finish football until 11.30 and thats in Johnstone.

No doubt, but useful info to those that like it eh.

My favourite parade of the year to take in - always a smart parade.  You will be tight for time - if the M8 isn't too bad you should just make it.
