Anyone who misses the Saturday parade, or wants to venture to "Old Metry", there is the Metairie Road St. Patrick's day parade on Sunday. Starts at noon and winds down Metairie Road (aka "Metry Road") on a 2-lane, oak-lined neighborhood thoroughfare.
Our entire family is riding, and I'm worn out shopping for throws! We've got cabbage, peanuts, beads (of course), stuffed animals (for friends of the kids), various other produce and food, and for my in-laws, Irish Spring soap ;0)
It's a large group of floats, trucks, and marching groups...the cabbages will be flying!
