St. Paddy’s Parade On Tap Saturday

Item: St. Patrick’s Day parade ready to roll/Jim Kershner, Spokesman-Review

More Info: The St. Patrick’s Day parade, a March tradition in Spokane for 30 years, winds through downtown Saturday, beginning at noon. This parade is always a grass-roots affair, organized by volunteers with the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick. Floats and bands are interspersed with guys driving green pickup trucks. More than 125 entries have already been accepted, and the grand marshal will be Mark Rypien, former Super Bowl MVP quarterback. This year you might even see a Hollywood star: Christian Slater.

Question: When was the last time that you were part of a parade? What did your entry feature?
