Parade brings out the Irish in everyone

With bagpipes flaring, children scrambling for candy, and vast displays of green, orange, and white around town, the Fargo-Moorhead St. Patrick's Day Parade gives people a chance to celebrate Irish heritage. It begins at 1 p.m.

Koechner, part of the Big Slick squad with Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis, Eric Stonestreet and Rob Riggle, served as a grand marshal of a parade once before, during the sesquicentennial of his hometown of Tipton, Mo. "We were thinking about what group we could become so we could march in it next year". Between 20 and 30 people with the parish helped work on their entry into this year's parade.

"We're out here to watch the parade", Helena resident Brenna Young said. Originally a more solemn holy day for the nation's Catholics, it has expanded over the years into more of a celebration of all things Irish, including parades, parties and lavish meals, in Ireland as well as America.

And now, more than thirty years later, the Syracuse St. Patrick's Parade is on the list of top ten St. Patrick's Parades in the country.

Dougherty recalled the 1980s, when Ed "threw" a fake St. Patrick's Day parade live on the air on a radio station.

She'll be riding along the parade route in a Central Park horse carriage, driven by a family friend. The float will promote the fan favorite float competition.

Once a defiant celebration of Irish pride as earlier settlers protested the newest immigrants, the parade has recently mostly been controversy free.

The parade has been a major event in the city since the mid-1800s.

At a time when large crowds often heighten security concerns, Albany Police are doing what they can to keep everyone safe during the parade, including increasing manpower and safety protocols.

It's sponsored by the St. Patricks Society.

"There are so many ifs and maybes, first of all I have to survive another year in my current office and secondly, Matt is not terribly keen to attend official functions but you never know". We are very concerned that we're trending the wrong direction on that.
