I had six friends walking in the Downtown Irish Club Parade and one of those friends also walked as a Swan Wrangler for the Daughters of Lir in the Irish Channel Parade. A great time was had by all but I'm sure there were many sore feet by the day's end. So, behold the crazy excess that is St Patrick's Day in New Orleans:
Even the dogs participated!
Irish Pub Themed Float
Truck Bar (An "Only in New Orleans" moment!)
The other half of my beads ended up on my husband!
