Today was the Oklahoma City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. It was a beautiful parade with hundreds of entries. I always love to see the old men with green and red beards; the bagpipers and young girls with llamas. Every year, the same Native Americans with Irish in their veins come out for the pomp and poetry of it all. I also love to see the young Irish dancers with their curly wigs. And, the clowns! There is so much to love in a parade!

Here are some of my favorite images from the day! If you copy my pictures and post them around the Web or on Facebook, will you please include the link to this post as credit? Thank you!

Update! Check out  my St. Patrick’s Day Parade pictures from 2012! Also, a post featuring St. Patrick’s Day graffiti via cellograff cellophane graffiti.  You might also like this post with Irish food.

    Jen, the dogs with green toenails and green tutus and your precious daughter in that “Hello, Kitty!” green T-shirt are my favorites!  I know you guys had great fun!  Hooray!  Thanks for the wonderful sharing here!

    Thanks, Yogi! I had to go back and look at the pic of the girl in the pic. I didn’t realize she was balancing with a stick, too. I love parades.

    Jen–
    Love the photos from beginning to end, not only of the parade, but those who came to view it as well.  This is life in Oklahoma (my Oklahoma).  Thanks for sharing a beautiful event with us.  Can’t wait to see your next offering.
    Hugs–  Gracie

    Nobody takes parade photos like you do Jen. Love your kids, they always look so happy, the dogs look totally humiliated. My favorite pic is the girl on the unicycle with one hand on a balance stick the other on a friend’s shoulder.
