I thought I would try my hand at a Flicker Blog. Sorry if it wreaked havoc with RSS readers, it was actually about five different blog entries.
Below you will see some of the pictures from our time in NYC during the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Wow, what an experience!
There were so many people in town for the parade, it was a little crazy. We kept hearing bits of Irish and British accents as we walked through the streets.
It isn't St. Pat's without a crazy hat!
The parade itself was awesome! Six hours of fun and fantastic music!
Taken from on top of "The Rock"
Notice that the bridge in the distance (sorry, no idea which one) even has green lights!
HAD to have the shirt!
Because I really DO "Shamrock NY"!
All in all it was a great experience. We had a great time walking along the parade route enjoying all of the spectators... they were almost as fun as the people participating in the parade themselves. The sun came out only one day during our entire stay in NYC, and that was St. Pat's Day. Nice, eh? As I said in a previous post, we even managed to get sunburned because of it.
I hear that Chicago dyes the river green for their St. Pats parade... maybe we should go there next year...
