2008 SAINT PATRICK’S DAY PARADE

Irish Clovers Flag
Luck of the Irish?  Those clovers don’t have four leaves! :p

This year’s Saint Paddy’s Day Parade was better than last year’s.  The highlights for me were the energetic Irish dance numbers — more plentyful than last year — and a strong Asian presence in traditional costumes which brought grace and beauty to the parade.  As far as improvements go, adding some music to the sports portion of the parade might make things a little livelier and, I can’t seem to figure out those bagpipes…  They all sound the same to me; I’ll try to listen more closely next year. ;)

The organization of the event was great.  No real delay and a very respectful crowd — thanks to the alert volunteers patrolling the event — made this a very enjoyable 90+ minutes of Celtic inspired fun.
