What better to do on a beautiful Sunday than go watch the
Greenville Saint Patrick’s Day parade?
I guess they didn’t get the daylight savings time memo, as
instead of starting at 1pm as planned, they finally paraded past closer to two.
But we didn’t mind waiting, did we?
After the parade the gates to Fluor Field were open for the
continuation of the festivities. Music, food, St. Patrick’s Day gear and face
painting, the stadium was lively. One green glitter activity later we continued
Falls Park was full of people enjoying the beautiful
weather. The fountains near the entrance reminded me of my hometown; in honor
of St. Patrick’s Day the Chicago River has been dyed green for 43 years. If you’re
in Chicago you can go watch this Saturday, the 16th at 10am.
Ice cream at Marble Slab Creamery and dinner at the Trappe
Door; after 10 days of the flu and stomach issues we haven’t completely
recovered but we’re close, thanks to a wonderful day spent downtown.
