St. Patrick's Day Parade

This parade was so fun except for the fact that Will had to work. A friend of ours has an apt on Magazine where the parade goes. It was nice because we could look out the window if we didn't want to be in the middle of the masses. This parade is a little different than the others in that they throw cabbage, carrots, potatoes, and onions. Everything you need for cabbage stew. There are other throws such as Irish soap or wintergreen mints. It is much more of a locals parade so it isn't as crowded in some ways.

Viola's dress was perfect. Thanks Hannons.
The first part is a walking parade which means lots of dancing.

And dance we did.

The chicken lady was there. Taking a break from her children.

Twirling with Aunt Jane.

Waiting for the floats.
