A nearby community holds a St. Patrick’s Day parade. In years past, we’ve gone to celebrate the “wearin’ o’ the green.” And while March is nearly spring–the sun shines warm, the temperatures are close to freezing–it is still winter here. And usually there are piles, huge piles of snow around. Although the streets are (usually) beginning to clear up, the snow that is plowed off the streets and driveways and parking lots can get quite high. So one major feature of our celebration is climbing up onto the snow pile.
This was our Little Miss Moose’s first St. Patrick’s Day and my dad made sure she was suitably attired by sending a cute bib.
Some people really go all out for the day.
And school kids make their own parade “cars”, they are really adorable.
And yes, the people walking in the parade throw candy. And yes, if it’s above freezing the snow is melting and yes, the streets are kinda dirty from the winter’s traction sand on the road. And really, you haven’t lived until you’ve taken dirty, muddy candy away from the kids after a parade! Ugh!
Happy St. Patty’s Day, ya’all! And go see Debi’s blog for other green pics.
