Yesterday I went to the St. Patrick's Day parade with two of my roommates. Luckily the sun was shining, which made the wind seem not so bad. This was the very first parade I've ever been to and I have to say it was pretty great. The parade started at the corner of Elgin St and Laurier Ave W, then towards Bank Street, south down Bank St to Lansdowne Park. We got to Bank St just at the back end of the parade, which made me enjoy it more because we had to catch up to it and we always saw something new and exciting.
Cheers to the Irish Society of Ottawa and Beau's for putting together such a wonderful event downtown.
