 Roanoke has more good parades than any city I've ever lived in and the St. Patrick's Day Parade (which my granddaughter says is hers because it's her birthday) is the best of them. The parade went on for more than an hour with 250 vehicles and 2,500 people today, as the streets were lined in downtown Roanoke with many, many thousands of people who seemed to have a pretty good time.

You can see the happiness on the faces of both the participants and the spectators here.
