And to this day it seems as if the whole city is present on the road with picnic baskets, umbrellas, and their recreational vehicles … enjoying one of the biggest street parties of the year! Give out flowers, pearls, and kisses for men and women in green costumes walking the groups from various clubs in city attire and lucky parade goers along the route.

St. Patrick’s Blessing
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand
