“We would like to thank all the 30th year annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade participants, judges and spectactors,” said TRIC spokeswoman Carlene Bockman. “Thank you again for taking the time on a beautiful day to participate in this fun event. It was a gorgeous day for the Irish! Remember, ‘If you’re lucky enough to be Irish, then you’re lucky enough!’”
