Luck of the Irish keeps rain away at Irish Channel parade (slideshow)

Posted By on Sat, Mar 11, 2017 at 6:57 PM

A rainy forecast caused organizers to push back the start time for Saturday's Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day parade, but there were only a few sprinkles as marchers made their annual stumble down Magazine Street.

Featured this year: seemingly half the city's men in kilts and ill-fitting tailcoats, obligatory bagpipes, Irish dancers, a Braveheart-themed marching group and floats that loosely honored movies and pop culture; plus the usual medley of absurd handouts and throws (lacy panties, Irish Spring soap, St. Patrick's Day beads, boxes of Lucky Charms, instant ramen noodles, Cheetos, potatoes, red bell peppers, carrots and cabbage).

If you missed today's parade, don't worry — another week of St. Patrick's Day events is in store in the city.
