I attended our first annual "Irish Pet Contest and Parade" last weekend and boy was it fun! It was a cool day with a forecast of rain, but I decided to go anyway and wasn't disappointed. The rain held off until almost the end of the parade so I only got a "little" wet. Luckily, I had all the pictures I wanted so the camera was tucked away safe and dry. Anyway, I got so many pictures, that I'm going to publish in two articles. One for today, and one of the actual parade for Friday.
The mood of the day was festive, the color of the day was green, and fun was had by all! The pets and owners queued at the foot of the Jefferson Ave Footbridge on Commercial St. And I think the pets were as excited as their owners!
Here's a slide show of all the cute pets and their owners, there was even an Alpaca entered!
