St Patrick's Day Parade

Céad míle fáilte romhat - A hundred thousand welcomes is the greeting for the St Patrick's Day Parade in Detroit today which has been held since 1959. Sponsored by the UIS, the United Irish Societies, the parade can be viewed in Corktown on Michigan Avenue from 6th to 14th Streets beginning at 2pm. Corktown is an historic neighborhood, dating back to 1834, that was largely inhabited by the Irish. May your Irish eyes be smiling this week and may your feet be dancing to that sweet bagpipe music. Thanks, Drum Major Kenric Knecht, for your great photo of Detroit's Shrine Highlanders.
