A True Parade

It's St. Patrick's Day weekend and when you live in Dublin, you live it up in style! Saturday was the annual parade, which by the way is ranked in the top 5 St. Patrick's Day parades in the nation, and it was the perfect weather for it. Gorgeous 50 degree temperatures, blue skies, sun...magnificent! I was impressed with all the giant balloons this year. The wind certainly made for a tough time controlling them, but they made the parade seem like I was watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in NYC....almost :) But, it was definitely better than the last parade I watched - the 4th of July parade in DC - because like a true parade, there was CANDY!!! Just how a parade should be :)

  1. Yay for candy at a parade! Although most of them were ageist and only handed out candy to the little kids.
