March Stroll - St Patrick's Day Parade!

In Seattle Flickr Tradition let's all be Irish for a day and document the fun and green St. Patrick's Day Parade!

The Parade kicks off at 12:30 pm, Saturday, March 16, 2013

Starting from 4th Ave at Jefferson in downtown Seattle.
The Parade travels north on 4th Ave starting from Jefferson to the Reviewing Stand at Westlake Park, and officially ends at the Seattle Center with Closing Ceremonies at 2 PM.

The Monorail will be free from 1:30 - 2:30 pm for travel from Westlake Park to the Seattle Center to participate in the 2013 Irish Festival.

Link to Route: http://www.irishclub.org/parade.htm

Also per tradition, let's meet at Top Pot on 5th Ave, for a quick cup o' joe and a maple bar (or whatever strikes your fancy). Then we can migrate down to 4th and Jefferson to scope out some spots! After the parade anyone who wants to should head on over to Seattle Center for a continuation of the festivities.

Wear something green or you might get pinched, or a pirate may grab ya up!

    Weather will be crap! Not too cold but raining and very damp. Dress in layers so you don't overheat or get too cold! Remember to protect your equipment too! See you tomorrow!

    I've never been to a Seattle St. Patrick's Day parade and I'm looking forward to it! I shoot digital and toy cameras. Top Pot sounds like a great idea!
