The Shortest Parade

Let me tell you, if you're ever feeling crabby and need to find a way out, I highly suggest a block party celebrating St. Patrick's Day.

The 10th annual Madra Rua Block Party was held yesterday.  The weather was perfect, the sun was shining brightly, and it all began with the shortest little parade.

This baby parade had all the requirements of a grown up parade---

It started off with folks sitting in and on a convertible, waving to the crowds.

 Followed by ONE bagpiper

The mayor driving a golf cart


The obligatory picture where the child wants to get down and run around.


The CAS car covered with green fur?


The cute little buddy watching the parade.  Don't blink Joey, you'll miss it!


A dancing mattress...


Two fire trucks


One marching band, or rather, part of one marching band...

and many many interesting parade watchers...

It was the shortest little parade, followed by the funnest day, and today, we are all pooped.  Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

I have always wanted to go to that parade and street party! The weather was perfect for it and looks like you guys had a great time!

Who was the mayor driving around in the golf cart?

Utterly delightful! It's a beefed-up version of our neighborhood Fourth of July parade (we don't have a dancing mattress, alas).
