Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Here are some photographs from past Saint Patrick’s day parades. It is kind of a virtual parade. For the second year in a row, there won’t be a real in-person parade. Now we have something to look forward to in 2022. The biggest difference in the parades from one year to the next is the weather.
We can have temperatures hovering around zero or they can be as high as 70. Some years it rains or snows and other years there is sunshine. One year it was so windy that I got a picture of a little green dog’s ears blowing in the wind.
Saint Patrick’s day is a very big deal in St. Paul. There is always a St. Patrick’s day parade downtown except for this year and last year. We thought last year would be the only year without a parade. We were wrong about that and about many other things. This year is a little different though. some bars and restaurants are open.
Be careful out there. Don’t let St. Patrick’s day become a super spreader event. The US still leads the world in the number of COVID-19 deaths.
