Oh my God! They'll be waving Irish flags and marching on our streets!! It's probably the Irish reconquista!! In a few months we'll all be speaking Gaelic or Celt or whatever they speak!!

Strangely enough, no one gets shot at this event.

They spend millions of $$ to remove the green in the canal then celebrate adding more to it!?

I just learned that my daughters school, Fishers Elementary, is celebrating "Leprechaun's Day". Are we THAT afraid of religion that we can't even acknowledge "SAINT" Patrick's Day? Look at your calendar. What does it say?

An Irish celebration at a German bar? Maybe for the wannabes who drink cheap green beer. The real Irish and the Hibernians will be at the Golden Ace.

What a d/ck!It's a celebration of the Irish community. You sound like one of those racists with an attitude. Take it to Al.

At least my great-great grandfather came to the United States from Dulin, Ireland in a legal manner, spoke English and became a U.S. citizen. Those are small distinctions, that make a large difference.

This is a collection of some of the most ignorant comments. No wonder this state is last in about everything.

Only about 10 percent of the Irish population still speak Gaelic. When it comes to ancestry, Germany and Ireland are our 2 biggest influences in America.

Does anyone know what type of dye they use on the canal? how long will it take to go away. just kinda makes me sad that it was finally clean and now its green again. seems like something that would start the icky problems.

This is a great day!! My daughter and her school are marching in the parade and I am so happy she is excited about this!! No matter the weather, her and her classmates feel like Disney stars today!!

And to the jerk who claims it is "White Expo", my daughter is black so it is not just about one race parading at ANY expo, it's about getting together to celebrate a history, a culture, a passion for life and the future for our kids to remember whatever their heritage is. If we have this attitude our kids will feed from it.

Chill out, drink a beer, play some cards and have a reason to kiss someone!! You only live once and you may come back as a bug and get stepped on....
