Day 78 More of the 1st ever St. Pat's parade in Grand Forks

More views of the parade in our little "hamlet", and its strange, intergenerational mix.

These are the Shriners, singing away in the party spirit of the whole thing. They all seem to take their performances very seriously, and are kind of cute, with their funny hats, and band instruments. In the background is our county courthouse, with blind Lady Justice on top, along with the US flag. It's a cool, old building.


And here are some very cute, cheerful young women, on a float, encouraging parade goers to end up at a local bar, for green beer, no doubt.


And this little boy also took his role seriously, tossing out candy to all the little kids along the route. Something for everyone!

What great pictures! I would love to have a parade like that in Houston, but I don't think we have it here.

Angela, it all looks fairly spring-like until you see the gloves on that boy's hands!! Hoping spring comes your way soon!

Don't your shriners ride in teeny-tiny cars? That's what ours do. Great colorful shots!

Looks like a great time! We have to drive 1 1/2 hrs to go to a St. Patricks Day parade...so we don't ever go.
