Coloma St. Patrick's Day Parade will feature drone light show

COLOMA, Mich. -- The City of Coloma in Southwest Michigan will host its annual St. Patrick's Day Lighted Parade on March 16, and this year the stylish floats will be joined by a drone light show.

The parade begins at 8 p.m., but after it has concluded, spectators will be treated to a mesmerizing drone show that organizers promise will be a visual feast.

The drone show is expected to last roughly 14 minutes and feature an array of intricately choreographed drones, painting the night sky in vibrant colors and patterns.

Organizers say the best viewing experience will be south of Badt Drive, where the display will be accompanied by synchronized music near the City Hall/Subway area.

"The lighted parade, a highlight of Coloma's St. Patrick's Day festivities, will start at 8 p.m. and proceed along Paw Paw Street from Washington to Center Street," organizers say. "To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all attendees, Paw Paw Street will be closed to traffic during the parade and will remain closed from Logan to Center Street for the duration of the drone show."

Planners say the weather forecast for the event currently looks promising, but attendees are encouraged to follow Starlight Aerial Productions and the City of Coloma on social media for any updates or changes.

"We are excited to collaborate with the City of Coloma to bring this innovative and festive drone show to our community," said Matthw Quinn, CEO of Starlight Arial Productions. "It's a wonderful opportunity to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in a spectacular and safe way. We invite everyone to join us for this unique night event."
