2012 St Patrick’s Parade

March 17, 2012 hopefully set the Seattle record for most winter weather conditions before an Irish Parade. Rain, cold and about a ten minute snow shower brought anxious moments to the weather weary walkers. Alas, as the flag of Ireland was ceremoniously lifted to start the 4 Avenue festivities, the clouds parted giving way to some sunshine . Our Band, accompanied by Firefighters from all over Puget Sound, and IAFF 7th District Motorcycle Group Riders pushed North to the Westlake Center with what appeared to be our biggest crowd yet.
