World's Longest St. Patrick's Day Parade

Posted By on Sat, Mar 17, 2012 at 1:32 PM


OK, folks, the St. Patrick's Day Parade is going by my office and has been for about 15 or 20 minutes, no kidding, and there's more to come. Men in kilts atop Harley Davidson's showing a bit of leg, red Farmall tractors, girls in fancy skirts and tops and guys in black slacks Irish dancing, an old convertible Thunderbird with Patrick Henry Hays, mayor of NLR, sitting on it and waving to the crowds. Fairies, elves, bagpipe players, music and, of course, pieces of gold. The Capital City Corvette Club. Irish for Ron Paul! Wow.
