The bagpipes players wearing kilts can't get any more Irish so they lead the parade past our apartment building with some beautiful music.
This is Paddy Hough, an early Irish settler for whom Hough Elementary is named for and the main participants of this downtown parade where Hough Elementary School is located.
Some of the younger kids from the Elementary School march with their teachers.
Old cars love to be featured in any parade!
Veterans ride in this old fire truck.
This group definitely tried "wearing the green " and even have a Leprechaun with them!

Even the rain didn't stop the parade. . . but there were fewer participants this year because of it. The rain did stop long enough for the parade to go on and returned later in the day. It's always a fun thing to watch and goes right past our apartment building so easy to get to and get back home fast. Hope you all enjoyed St. Patrick's Day this year too!
