Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
I was able to complete Task 91 from my 100 In A Year list Saturday, which was to go to a St. Patrick’s Day parade. The annual Mal’s St. Paddy’s Day Parade in my hometown is a big deal (actually it’s one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day parades in the country) so I decided to check it out since I’ve never been.
I took my niece and two of our family friends with me and between meeting people, dancing to music and attempting to catch beads, we had a blast. Local news station WAPT reports that over 80,000 people came out for the parade.
There were over 50 floats and several vendors that showed up for the festivities. Check out photos from the parade below.
