Going Green in Syracuse: Video Coverage of St. Patty’s Day Parade
Utica's St. Patty's Day parade was on Saturday so there's a chance you didn't make it to Syracuse for their "green' festivities. Don't worry, we've got some video coverage for you here.
Downtown Syracuse looked unusually green on Saturday. Typically, Salinas Street is washed out by lots of people wearing orange; that wasn't the case over the weekend.
Grand Marshall Joseph E. Ohara kicked off the parade, and it didn't disappoint. This year's event featured brave soldiers from the 10th Mountain Division, The Emerald City Scottish Pipe Band, and the Baldwinsville High School Color Guard.
According to SyracuseSt.Patricksparade.com:
The Syracuse St. Patrick's Parade began in 1982, founded by an amazing woman, Nancy Duffy, and a small group of her friends including Sheila Shattuck, Rev. John Ahern, and the late Tom Higgins. Thirty-three years later, the Parade is stronger than ever
