Will the pool be dyed green for the occasion?
#5 Mar 14, 2014
Well, the Irish Cultural Hole will be green as usual, all by the hand of Mother Nature... hahaha!!

Maybe they could paint all the pot holes green so they're easier to spot.
No doubt they'll need a grant to buy all the paint.

All streets should be closed because of craters and bumbs and pot holes. You cant drive on them anyways. Also, keep an eye opened for parade disappearers, the pot holes might swallow you up.

What parade!!!! it was the worst parade of all the years of having big and entertaining St. Patrick Parades.
It started 1/2 hour late and no large floats like last year. It was cold and raining and people were just plain rude.
It certainly wasn't worth the time spent there.

Who won the float, band competition?

The green paint was donated!

The WKTV Broadcast was definitely not donated. Too many ads!
The line up from the parade organizers was soo screwed up. Groups were separated throughout.
