The Wearing of the Green

Since I was coming to Savannah to keep the grands this weekend, I decided to drive over a day early so that Walker, Katie and I could take in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  Savannah has one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day parades in the country.

It was a gorgeous day, and we found our place along the curb just before the parade started.

The bagpipe bands were quite colorful.

But they were also quite loud.  It’s a good thing Walker brought his earplugs.

There were lots of colorful floats.

And even the Budweiser Clydesdales, which were followed by several people with large pooper scoopers.

But Walker was especially thrilled with the Piggly Wiggly float with its giant pig.

Kathy, this looks like so much fun! Those bagpipe guys have such wonderful kilts, etc. Love the picture of that little cutie, enjoying everything with ear plugs firmly in his ears. laurie
