We saw a lot of stuff such as many clans, bagpipers, St. Paul Bouncing Team*, Irish Elvis, and Irish dogs like Irish Wolfhounds in the St. Paul St. Patrick’s Day Parade. I also spotted a guy selling green cotton candy and a lady selling green stem roses.  I hear St. Patrick’s Day (St. Patty’s Day) is getting popular all over the world.  For example, one of our friends from Argentina says, “Argentina celebrates St. Patrick’s Day and so does Mexico”.  March 17th is an awesome day because it’s spring.
