2015 St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dogtown

At the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dogtown on March 17, 2015, the sidewalks were crowded with people dressed in all shades of green, some with bright orange or green beards and some in just a green hat. People were stacked on hills, in trees, on balconies, roofs and porches all along the parade route. Presented by the Ancient Order of the Hibernians, the parade is the longest running in St. Louis.
