Please wear your costume and we will take your picture for the costume contest.  Please be advised masks are required for this drive-through event.

Proceeds from the Marietta Shamrock Shuffle will benefit Marietta PAL, a non-profit organization which believes “it’s better to build youth than mend adults.” Through free and low-cost youth programs, PAL helps to prevent juvenile crime and violence by providing civic, athletic, recreational and educational opportunities which create trust and build understanding between law enforcement and youth.  PAL provides programs for school-aged youth, from 5-17 years old.  PAL offers daily afterschool, summer camp, martial arts, boxing and basketball programs at the Hugh L. Grogan Jr. Community Center, 510 Lawrence Street, Marietta, GA 30060.
