I didn’t realize that today is the day when St. Patrick’s Day Annual Parade Celebration takes place. So it took me three hours to get to downtown San Francisco (ouchhh!) even though I live in the City. Today most of major roads toward downtown were closed for the parade (which made me stuck). Well but I wasn’t all that upset because I had a chance to see a little celebration full of brides. Yes male and female they were all wearing bridal attire and dance in the city today. I saw these brides ran around and hoped into the bus (they were shouting and cheering from the open deck sign-seeing bus) it was a very fun, relieving and entertaining sight for me after all those hours sitting in the traffic. (I am glad I was able to take these three pictures home to share – taken from iPhone)
A little info from kron4 about the parade:
The parade starts at Second and Market streets around 11:30 a.m. with dancers, performers and visitors from Ireland, said event spokesman Diarmuid Philpott with the United Irish Societies of San Francisco.
The parade ends at the Civic Center Plaza with a festival featuring three beer gardens, live entertainment, pony rides, a petting zoo and about 60 vendors.
“People will be selling Irish hats, Irish clothing, beef jerky, jewelry, arts and crafts, and will celebrate being green,” festival spokeswoman Sarah Tipple said.
