Have you ever been to the Colorado Springs St. Patrick's Day Parade?
It's awesome. I didn't get to stay long last year, but the band entries seemed wonderful. I especially liked the bag pipers! "Marchers and spectators in their green bedecked finery-over 100 parade entries, including bands and floats-flags and magical leprechauns, highlight one of the grandest traditions in Colorado Springs, and one of the biggest events in our city. Over 30,000 cheering revelers - young and old - will line the streets as the parade winds through the heart of Downtown to the sound of bagpipes beginning at noon."
