Church Hill Irish Festival.

Who knew there were that many Irish organizations, dance groups and bag pipers in the city?! I did not. The parade was great! Sadly, I worked all day so I missed the hoopla. Guinness and Harp right out my front door… and me on the other side of the river. Go figure.

Here are some photos from the parade Saturday morning. Don got some shots of the crowd later in the day. Apparently it was record breaking turn out for the Church Hill Irish Festival . Don could hear the announcer clearly…the main stage was also right out our front window… man it would’ve been a good day for a party.

Bagpipes and kilts? Extremely Irish. Fried Oreos and cheese fries? Not so much.
