Around the world they celebrate this day. The O’Dirtish’s were fortunate to be at the Parade last week in New Orleans. The rehearsal started a week earlier. It was a couple hundred Irish Channel club member walking and drinking behind a single float blaring Irish Standards. At least it was 9 am. The real parade was Saturday. It was a stop n go deally’o about the same as the rehearsal. But they threw out cabbages, onions and carrots. Yup. Play it right and you got three parts of the stew.
No parade in Kelowna. But bands do appear at downtown pubs where you gotta know someone to get in. Check cabbage at door.
