St. Patrick Makes an Early Stop in Raleigh

Raleigh hosts the Southeast’s 2nd largest St. Patrick’s Day parade, and it took place yesterday afternoon!  A 90-minute parade was followed by the Wearin’ ‘O the Green festival that boasted plenty of Irish dancing, fair-style fried foods, and Irish beers galore.  Downtown Raleigh is home to many Irish pubs, so people of all ages and background (Irish or not) got a bit rambunctious.

I made sure to wear green and enjoy a Harp lager in the sunshine.  It was perfect festival weather!

Unfortunately I left the memory card to my digital camera at home, so I used my phone to take all pictures.  I think they came out pretty well, surprisingly.  Enjoy!
